Shreveport Reports More Catalytic Converter Thefts
We've got more reports of metal thefts from cars, this time a Shreveport scrapyard takes the hit. Catalytic converters were hacked off several cars at Bar-N-Towing sometime over the weekend. They discovered the missing parts while they were doing inventory Tuesday morning. "It does de-value the car an incredible amount and it is a pretty good dent in the business. (We're) not sure what the actual hit's going to be, we're in the process of inventory right now but we're looking at over $1,000 at this point." Owner John Norris says they've been aware of the trend in scrap metal swiping and tried to step up staffing. Now, he says they'll probably have to take security a step further, with surveillance equipment.
