Thefts of Car Parts - Loudoun County Sheriff
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is warning of thieves targeting catalytic converters, tires and rims. The thefts are occurring during the overnight hours. Thieves are focusing on vehicles parked at apartment complexes.
Preventing Catalytic Converter Theft
- Security devices are available that attach to the converter, making it harder to steal. Having the converter welded in place also makes it more difficult to remove.
- If you have a security system on your car, calibrate it so vibration sets it off. This ensures the alarm activates if a thief tries to saw off the converter.
Preventing Tire and Rim Thefts
- Use wheel locks on each wheel, including your spare.
- Turn your wheels when parking. This makes the wheels harder to remove, because they get stuck in the wheel well. The car's steering column lock makes it difficult for the thieves to turn the wheels forward again without a key for the ignition.
- Install a car alarm that includes sensors that attach to the wheels.
As a reminder, we are repairing and repaving the paths and trails around the lakes. Some Lake areas are marked with cones and signs, please stay off these areas. Depending on the weather, we should complete all trails in the next 2 weeks.
