Catalytic Converters

As catalytic converter theft continues to surge, it is imperative that scrap recyclers have as much information as possible to identify stolen catalytic converters. Simply reporting one or two were stolen does not provide the necessary information. As more and more vehicle owners have been encouraged to mark catalytic converters by etching and / or heat resistant paint, please provide this information if available. If possible, indicate how the catalytic converter was removed, e.g. cut with a sawzall or shear. Also, a photo of a catalytic converter from the same make, model, and year vehicle may prove to be helpful.
