With the theft of catalytic converters prevalent in the Tucson region and across the country, upcoming etching events seek to provide vehicle owners with a layer of protection.
This Saturday, August 28, the Tucson Police Department announced Brake Master, 351 W. Valencia Road, Jiffy Lube, 3260 N. Oracle Road, and Kenny’s Exhaust Works, 275 W. Host an event at Fort. Lowell Road, # 2. Companies etch the vehicle’s catalytic converter for free with the last eight letters of the vehicle identification number.
To participate, the vehicle owner must contact one of the companies to schedule August 28th.
Allstate said that catalytic converter metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium are valuable to metal recyclers.
Repairing emission controls that can be stolen from a vehicle within 15 minutes using a power tool typically costs around $ 1,000 or more.
