Kansas City Politicos Deserve Credit For 'Solving' Catalytic Converter Thefts?!?

The good news with respect to hottie Jordan and her body shop body of work . . . 

The fight against car crime earned some progress . . . Sure, local policy helped but let's take a look at the big picture . . . 


And so . . . We're happy to witness slightly lower crime in one aspect of the car game that shouldn't overshadow a lot of room for improvement . . . Nevertheless, here's the most relevant info:

Catalytic converter thefts are down. In fact, thefts dropped more than 70% in Kansas City, Missouri, from last year. Kansas City police attribute the drop to a combination of things.

"More awareness from car owners, marking the convertors so they can't be sold as easily and enforcing laws/codes at the businesses that purchase convertors from the public,” Capt. Timon Holcomb, KCPD Property Crimes Commander, said in a statement.

Last year, 2,176 catalytic converters were stolen in Kansas City. By the end of November this year, that number was only 570.

Thefts are down across the city, but have fallen most in the Central Patrol Division that includes downtown, Westport and the Plaza. In 2022, 820 catalytic converters were stolen in that division, according to KCPD data. As of Nov. 29, 2023, that was down to 142 converters. At the current rate of thefts, Central Patrol would end 2023 with about 150 thefts, an 82% drop.
