“Etch and Catch” Activity

The Livermore Police Department and partners are hosting an event next week aimed at helping some residents prepare to fight the scourge of catalytic converter theft.

LPD, Las Positas College’s Department of Automotive, Subaru and Toyota will host a free Catalyst on Tuesday (November 29) from 8 am to 4 pm at the community college campus in Livermore (behind building 800 in the Loop) Converter etch activity.

“Because the catalytic converter was not serialized, this incident will help law enforcement track down the owner of the stolen catalytic converter,” officials said. “If your vehicle’s VIN is etched on the catalytic converter, it can help police identify the owner. Also, thieves could face charges of stolen property, not just possession of suspected stolen property.”

The “Etch and Catch” event is first come, first served. Officers will also have information kiosks about catalytic converter theft and prevention tips.For more information please email [email protected] or [email protected]
