It’s so sad how you can’t park your vehicle without some lowlife stealing something from it for a profit. Most likely they use the money for drugs or what not. So sad!!
What is so sad city,state doesn’t go hard on these people so they can finally stop once and for all!
I was shopping at Nordstrom Rack in Bakersfield and my Catylitic Converter was stolen in broad daylight. It cost me $2700!
So sad but at the same time I hope that Justus is Served and sorry for all the people that have gotten their Cadillac converter stolen and hardship you had gone through.
My car was parked in front of my garage and it was stolen and my neighbors have camera but nobody seen anything i had to pay 1500 to get another ,
My catalytic converter was stolen 3 times !!! Honda element 2009… I had to sell it 🥲 1500 of copay that went to the trash😡
This happened to my neighbor except thieves don’t know who they stole from & he has a high tech system that they didn’t know. I’m not sure what he’s doing about it but he mentioned he has license plates whether their not for the car including their vin on the dash! That’s why I say high tech not sure on his profession but I could only imagine. Governor isn’t working (your law).
my neighbor and I live in Beverly Hills & we both drove Prius’ that were the park in front of the house and our catalytic converters were stolen.
No what’s sad are the car insurance company’s who don’t offer some kind of compensation for as much money we pay for insurance and yes California’s lienancy towards criminals will only have them out there doing it again. So sorry to everyone it’s happened to.
I live in Rancho Mirage, California, and my catalytic converter was stolen right in the parking stall despite living in a gated community. It is a city owned property and has no security cameras, so it happened sometime between 11 PM and 7 AM.
I believe that whenever you want to clean anything, you must start from the top and work your way down.
STOP the people that are buying the stolen converters, they know that they are stolen.
