WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Police in Wauseon are working to figure out who is responsible for several catalytic converter thefts.

Police say thieves have hit several cars lately, the most recent occurred Saturday.

"It's just a matter of them getting under your car, taking a small saw and cutting two pipes," said Chief Keith Torbet. "It's being sold as scrap at different scrap yards, we're sure."

The police have sent out alerts to local scrap yards and are working with the community to keep an eye out for the missing parts.

They say most of the thefts are occurring in parking lots and during the day while people are at work. According to Chief Torbet, the best way to keep your car safe is to be alert.

"If people keep an eye on their vehicles and their neighbors' vehicles, this will help keep it down and deter it," Torbet said.

Anyone with information that can help police figure out who is responsible for the thefts is asked to call them at 419-335-3821.
