  1. Catalytic converter thefts listed every week! I’ve been wondering how we can combat this, and saw an article posted in Bothell: What can you do to protect your vehicle?
    -Park vehicles in a garage. If that’s not possible, at least park in a well-lit area.
    -Consider installing a catalytic theft prevention device, or having your catalytic converter welded to your vehicle.
    -Mark your vehicle’s VIN number on your catalytic converter with a UV pen.
    -Report theft and suspicious activity to police.
