Cat theft getting ridiculous

Catalytic converter thieves in Vancouver are getting so brazen, broad daylight and witnesses with cameras aren't slowing them down. Scum are so practiced it takes less than 30 seconds for them to remove a converter that costs $1,000 to replace. Converters are money on the hoof for drug addicts. 1,189 thefts have been reported to VPD in 2021 so far, up from 1,060 in all of 2020. Claim costs are more than $2.3m.
