    Catalytic converters allegedly stolen from Salvation Army vehicles

    Essex County OPP responded to the Salvation Army in Leamington Monday for a theft report. 

    Police say catalytic converters were stolen from the organization’s vehicles at its Setterington Street location. The theft took place between Friday, Dec. 18 and Monday, Dec. 21.

    “At a time where non-profit charitable organizations have struggled with less donations and higher demand this is very disheartening,” police said in a news release.

    Police are encouraging the public to report “suspicious activity” and have the following suggestions to prevent this type of theft:

    • When possible, park in well-lit areas and close to building entrances.
    • If you have a garage at your house, park your car inside and keep the garage door shut.
    • If your car has an alarm set it to activate when it detects vibration.
    • Have the catalytic converter welded to your car’s frame, which may make it harder to steal.

    Consider engraving your vehicle identification number (VIN) on the catalytic converter – this may help alert a scrap dealer that it was stolen and make it easier to identify the owner.

    Anyone with information regarding this or any other incident is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or leave an anonymous online message at where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
