The Farmington Hills Police Department issued a Nixle.com alert Monday warning about multiple thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles.
The alert indicated that this type of crime has become a problem across metro Detroit, particularly at apartment complexes, businesses and small industrial complexes. Thefts typically occur on trucks and SUVs, "because criminals can easily access the under-carriage of the vehicle and quickly remove the converters", the alert warned.
Anyone who sees suspicious activity should immediately contact Farmington Hills Police, by calling 911.
Anyone with information about who may be responsible for these crimes should call the police command desk, 248-871-2610.
