Police warn of increased catalytic converter thefts – and the #1 victim is the Prius

Do you drive a Toyota Prius? Might want to take extra precautions to ensure that thieves don’t saw off your catalytic converter.

Olympia Police report that there have been 12 reports of these catalytic converter thefts in the past three weeks alone – and 11 of the victim vehicles have been a Toyota Prius, model years 2002-2009. The thefts are happening all over Thurston County and the Puget Sound, according to OPD.

Thieves jack the cars up, take a power saw to the catalytic converter, saw it off, and they’re gone, all within a matter of minutes. Thieves can then sell the converters to metal recyclers for quick cash, the Police Department said.

An extra-large catalytic converter from a foreign vehicle is worth between $261 and $473, while small, domestic cats can be worth around $100, according to metal recyclers.

If your catalytic converter gets stolen—you’re going to know about it right away. With the cat gone, the exhaust system no longer reduces engine noise. And that makes your car very loud. You will hear loud roaring sound, that will get louder as you push the gas pedal.

If you fall victim to a theft, make sure to file a police report right away, and call 911 if you interrupt the crime while it’s in progress. The odds of getting your converter back are slim, but following case trends can help police officers stop thieves in the act.

52-year-old man booked into jail after pointing loaded gun at girlfriend

A 52-year-old Olympia man has been booked into jail after he allegedly pointed a loaded pistol at his 48-year-old girlfriend during an argument at his residence, according to a report by a Thurston County Sheriff’s deputy.

Riverside Manor Apartments, Old Pacific Hwy SE.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 17th. Deputies were summoned to the man’s residence, at the Riverside Manor Apartments on Old Pacific Hwy SE, when 911 dispatchers received a call of a possible domestic disturbance around 3:15 am.

The 911 call was described as an open line, with dispatchers able to hear what was going on in the background. The female victim was overheard saying that a male, later identified as her boyfriend, had threatened her with a gun.

When deputies arrived at the residence, they challenged the male suspect and took him into custody. A 9mm Ruger Hi-Point pistol was found in the front pocket of the suspect’s pants. It was found to have a round in the chamber and six additional rounds in the magazine.

The argument allegedly originated when the male suspect awoke to find his girlfriend on the phone with her ex-boyfriend. He told his girlfriend to leave, and when she refused, he retrieved the gun from his bedroom and pointed it at her head or torso. The victim told deputies that she believed the gun was loaded and was in fear for her life.
