Westmoreland County business targeted by thieves

A Westmoreland County business was targeted by thieves looking for catalytic converters, police said. Three vehicles were damaged at Arona Auto Care in Adamsburg last week. State police are still searching for the person or people responsible. Police said catalytic converters remain a popular target for criminals who can net a few hundred dollars for each one. Stealing them often leads to more than $ 1,000 in damages for the vehicle’s owner. “What they’re getting and the inconvenience and the crime they’re causing is absolutely horrible for the victim to go through. I know it sounds something minor but you’re talking about an extreme expensive to a victim for the few hundred bucks that the person is actually going to get, “Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Steve Limani said. Experts said vehicles that sit higher are more often targets for thieves because they can slip underneath and take the devices in a matter of minutes.
