  1. Catalytic converters are the target of the reciprocating saw. They are worth thousands new and hundreds used. This is why there are so many reports of thefts of them.
    These guys are well known to the police and have many previous charges for a number of different things. Too bad the catch and release program is still in effect at the local courthouse which puts them right back on the street to do more crimes.
