Crime & Safety PSA – Catalytic Converter Thefts

The following is a crime and safety PSA from the Soulard Special Business District, in partnership with St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Catalytic converter thefts are on the rise. If you experience a theft of any kind, please report it to the police. Reporting crime accurately is important, and it influences the patrols assigned to our Soulard neighborhood. Call (314) 231-1212 for any non-emergency reporting. Toyota Prius and Honda Element models, along with vehicles like vans and buses that are easier for thieves to get under, are being hit most often. Police recommend parking in a well-lit area or garage, if possible. Many auto parts stores also sell shields that can be installed over the converter to make it more difficult to take.
