NY State Announces Crackdown on Catalytic Converter Theft


New measures have been announced by Gov. Hochul to crack down on catalytic converters and auto theft in New York State.

Among the measures, State Police have been directed to ramp up enforcement, increase interstate coordination, and partner with other law enforcement in high-theft areas.

Additionally, Gov. Hochul signed legislation that combats catalytic converter theft by imposing restrictions on the purchase, sale and possession of the converters by vehicle dismantlers and scrap processors.

“We’re going to double down on these efforts because this is a serious problem no one should have to worry about”, Gov. Hochul said.
