There have been a number of thefts of catalytic converters from several locations in Warrenton in the last week. The thieves used a handheld electric reciprocating saw to remove the converters, said Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

On Dec. 3, a catalytic converter was taken from a James Madison Highway home (near Trinity Church on U.S. 29). It was stolen from a car for sale at the end of a driveway.

On Dec. 4, catalytic converters were missing from six cars at the Virginia Motor Company on Old Alexandria Turnpike. Suspects were caught on video (see video).

On Nov. 30 a truck on a dealer lot on Lee Highway was found to be missing a catalytic converter.
