A Lakewood man was arrested after police caught him in the act of cutting a catalytic converter off a vehicle at a car dealership in Toms River, Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronary says.
At about 4 AM Wednesday, Toms River Officers Pascal Gambardella and Joseph Mastronardy responded to a Route 9 car dealership in Toms River in reference to a noise complaint.
Upon arrival, Police found High Point resident Leonard M. 47, under a Hyundai and using a sawzall to cut the catalytic converter from the vehicle, Mastronardy says.
Further investigation led officers to recover four other stolen catalytic converters in his possession from other vehicles in the area. TLS.
Catalytic Converters have Platinum in them, which is probably what the thief was after.
…..it’s in english on my browser
#2, ok here goes…”Catalytic Converters have Platinum in them, which is probably what the thief was after.”, hows that!
To #2, the article seems to be in english as the response in #1 Maybe you should learn to read english
It says the thief was a resident of High Point and that more catalytic converters were recovered. I guess that’s why there were about 5-6 Lakewood and Toms River police vehicles at High Point this morning?
dumd robber good riddence
A catalytic converter (colloquially, “cat” or “catcon”) is a vehicle emissions control device which converts toxic byproducts of combustion in the exhaust of an internal combustion engine to less toxic substances by way of catalysed chemical reactions. The specific reactions vary with the type of catalyst installed. Most present-day vehicles that run on gasoline are fitted with a “three way” converter, so named because it converts the three main pollutants in automobile exhaust: an oxidizing reaction converts carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC) to CO2 and water vapour, and a reduction reaction converts oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to produce CO2, nitrogen (N2), and water (H2O).
The first widespread introduction of catalytic converters was in the United States market, where 1975 model year gasoline-powered automobiles were so equipped to comply with tightening U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations on automobile exhaust emissions. These were “two-way” converters which combined carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC) to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). Two-way catalytic converters of this type are now considered obsolete, having been supplanted except on lean burn engines by “three-way” converters which also reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
Catalytic converters are still most commonly used in exhaust systems in automobiles, but are also used on generator sets, forklifts, mining equipment, trucks, buses, locomotives, motorcycles, airplanes and other engine-fitted devices. They are also used on some wood stoves to control emissions. This is usually in response to government regulation, either through direct environmental regulation or through health and safety regulations.
Catalytic oxidization is also used, but for the purpose of safe, flameless generation of heat rather than destruction of pollutants, in catalytic heaters.
Now if ur definition is true why would he or anyone 4 that matter want it !?!?
