“Prius thefts of Catalytic Converters?”

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you had heard anything about the thefts of catalytic converters from Prius in NW DC. Apparently the rare Earth metals in the converters have led to an increase in the thefts, including three on our block one night last week (including ours.) I hadn’t heard of this being an issue in a long time but apparently it’s on the rise. There’s a relatively inexpensive fix (compared to getting a new converter) a shield you can purchase.”
