The Colony police are warning Dodge truck owners to be on alert. In the past five weeks, six catalytic converters from Dodge brand diesel pick-up trucks have been taken while the trucks were left parked and un-occupied, police say.
According to police, the suspects have used saws and dismantled the entire converter systems in 2008 and newer models.
A news release from the department states the catalytic convertors on these types of vehicles are very expensive to replace.
Most of the thefts have occurred during the late-night hours parked on the street or on the driveway, police say.
Residents who own these model trucks are cautioned to take all preventative measures possible to prevent theft. Parking vehicles in a secured garage is the best way to prevent theft, said the release.
People are asked to report suspicious activity immediately. Anyone with information pertaining to the thefts is asked to contact the criminal investigations division at 972-625-8273.
