It's happening again. Catalytic converters are being stolen often. And Kankakee County Sheriff's Police report most of the reported thefts are occurring in the Momence and St. Anne areas. The Sun River Terrace neighborhood is also a popular area.
Police say Chevy Cavaliers are the popular hit.
Sheriff department spokesman Ken McCabe says people need to be aware of their surroundings and pay attention to suspicious activity.
McCabe said guys working on a vehicle, making noise with power tools and hanging around casing out a vehicle is a sure sign 'someone's up to no good.'
Those noticing such activity should get a description, license plate number and notify police.
The converters in question contain gold, platinum, rodium, and palladium. That is turned into a cash refund.
