SANFORD, Fla. – Thieves hit a Sanford company, making off with 36 catalytic converters from trucks at the business, according to police.
Police were called to Longwood Truck Center — 4215 Orlando Drive — on Saturday.
A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device underneath your vehicle that reduces toxic gases. The converters contain three precious metals: platinum, palladium and rhodium.
A worker there said he noticed the converters were missing from trucks on the lot when he arrived around 8 a.m., according to the incident report.
The business said the thefts would cost $33,000 to repair, the report shows.
This same business was targeted by catalytic converter thieves in March 2021.
