The Lancaster County Auto Crimes Task Force, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Auto Theft Prevention Authority, will host our second catalytic converter burn detail on Saturday, July 24, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This will be located at the Lancaster City Streets and Public Works Garage, located at 225 Riverside Avenue in Lancaster Township. The event is free and open to the public. A team of men and women from Lancaster City Police Office and Lancaster City Public Works will work together to have Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) stamped on the catalytic converters of participating vehicles.
Catalytic converters are known to contain valuable and valuable materials and are a frequent target of theft among criminals. We have observed a recent increase in the theft of catalytic converters in the town of Lancaster and Lancaster County. Having your VIN stamped on this valuable auto part is a theft deterrent and makes it nearly impossible for thieves to resell these stolen parts.
The VIN engraving process should only take 10 to 15 minutes after your car is in the garage and mounted on an elevator. This is a first come, first served, no appointment required. Certain types of vehicles are more often victims of this type of theft. They include Honda Pilot, Honda Element, and Toyota Prius. Come, meet amazing staff and detectives who work hard to keep our city safe! Free service offered to prevent theft of catalytic converters | fox43.com
