Catalytic Converter Thefts

 Bullhead City (Ariz.) – May 20, 2021 – The Bullhead City Police Department has noticed a trend in catalytic converter thefts from parked vehicles. Since the December, 2020, the police departments in both Bullhead City and nearby Laughlin, NV have taken numerous theft reports where a catalytic converter was cut off from underneath a vehicle. Some of the cases occurred during daylight hours in busy parking lots.

Police believe these stolen catalytic converters are possibly being sold to recycling centers out of town. In Arizona per ARS 44-1642.01, used catalytic converters are prohibited from being sold to scrap metal dealers.

Police urge citizens to report any suspicious activity of people near or underneath parked cars or carrying tools, such as a sawsall or pipe cutter, in places where these tools would be unusual. Call the Bullhead City Police Department (928) 763-9200 or the non-emergency dispatch number at (928) 763-1999 after hours.
