Greenwood Police Chief Will Dawson took to social media on Thursday, February 25, warning residents of a new trend among thieves.
On Wednesday, February 24, a local daycare, Little Blessings Preschool and Childcare, reportedly had their catalytic converters cut off their vehicles. Apparently, the act is becoming increasingly widespread, and even in broad daylight.
For example, CINTAS recently had 10 vehicles get their converters cut off, and they were forced to rent trucks to replace their fleet. “I feel if the public was more aware maybe some of this could be prevented,” shared one concerned resident.
Chief Dawson cautioned residents to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity and to contact the police department at 479-996-4119.
