MORRISVILLE, PA — The Morrisville Police Department announced they are seeing an uptick in thefts of catalytic converters, as are many other police departments across Pennsylvania and the nation.

Officials state that, in some instances, thieves are stealing vehicles from a residence or business and moving them to a nearby location to commit the crime.

On June 18th, 2021 the Morrisville and Falls Townships Police Departments took reports of vehicle thefts, specifically Ford model trucks/vans, where the catalytic converters were removed.

Police are asking that owners to keep vehicles locked and park in a well lit area. Additionally, if possible, install motion sensor lights along your driveway and have your vehicle equipped with an alarm.

If you witness a crime or suspicious activity, contact the Morrisville Borough Police Department at (215) 295-8112.
