Shop Owner Stunned By Speed of Catalytic Converter Theft
Sept. 16, 2021—A Colorado repair shop recently reported a catalytic converter theft that took the thief just 10 seconds to complete, CBS Denver reported.
“Even my guys aren’t that fast,” said Steve Horvath, owner of Jeno’s Auto Service, after watching surveillance video of a catalytic converter thief this summer.
The customer’s car had been parked in the back of the shop. In the middle of a sunny Saturday, when the shop was closed, the video camera caught a thief pulling up, going under the car and cutting out the vehicle’s catalytic converter. It took approximately 10 seconds, Horvath said.
