Troopers Warn Vehicle Owners to Be Vigilant

HENDERSON, KY. (February 3, 2021) – The Kentucky State Police in Henderson has documented a number of complaints whom have reported their vehicle’s catalytic converters stolen. Many of these complainants are concentrated in the Henderson, Daviess and Ohio Counties. However, these thefts have also affected the Tri-State area including Evansville.

Since November, investigators have opened 38 cases involving the theft of these exhaust emission components. Depending on size and make, catalytic converters may bring anywhere from $20-$400 (varies broker-to-broker).

The majority of these thefts have been company and church vehicles left over night.

Detectives believe the suspects are operating a white cargo style van but no other information available. Troopers encourage you not to confront any suspicious persons but rather call your local police agency to report the incident.

Should anyone have information on the suspects or holds knowledge of these thefts, please call Kentucky State Police Post 16 at 270-826-3312.
