Richmond Police say six catalytic converters have been stolen off vehicles in the past two days. Thieves crawl under the vehicles and cut them off.
So far the thefts have occurred in company parking lots, where several vehicles are parked and it's easier for the thief to hide. Still, police say anyone could fall victim.
"Everybody needs to be concerned and needs to be diligent" says Sgt. Bob Mott of Richmond Police. "If you see anyone suspicious hanging around anyone's vehicle you need to call us and let us check it out."
Police say someone also tried to cut the converter off a government vehicle at the Army Reserves Center on North Keeneland Drive but wasn't successful.
