Police Respond To Uptick Of Catalytic Converter Thefts

BRISTOL, R.I. (WLNE) – Who stole the catalytic converters from two transport cars belonging to Rhode Island Veterans Home, on Tuesday afternoon?

That’s the question Bristol Police and Rhode Island State Police are trying to answer.

According to a police report, a Veterans Home nurse went to start a transport car around noon on Tuesday, to bring residents to a medical appointment.

When the car wouldn’t start, the nurse inspected the vehicle and saw the catalytic converter was missing, on not one but two transport cars.

The nurse told police the cars were last used last week and predicted the theft happened between Christmas Eve and Tuesday.

Surveillance video was turned over to police.

Thankfully, no appointments were missed by any RIVH residents.

This is an ongoing investigation with Bristol Police Department and Rhode Island State Police. Check back for any updates.
