St. Paul police will mark catalytic converters to make them less appealing to thieves
April 6, 2021
St. Paul police will hold a drive-through clinic Saturday to help vehicle owners protect their license plates and catalytic converters, two items that have been hotly targeted by thieves in recent months.
Officers will spray paint the outside of drivers' catalytic converters and install theft-prevention screws on license plates between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the north parking lot of Allianz Field, the home of the Minnesota United soccer team off Snelling Avenue and I-94.
"We're going to try to make the devices a little less appealing to would-be thieves," the department said in a Facebook posting announcing the event.
