Police in the city of Miramar are warning residents to be on the lookout for thieves who were caught on camera stealing catalytic converters for the metal found inside.
Miramar Police posted a video on social media showing the theft, where two men got out of a car and stole the converter from a silver Hyundai on April 9 before fleeing the scene in a black car.
Miramar PD said residents should consider installing a anti-theft device on their cars, as well as parking in a well-lit area if possible. Homeowners can protect their cars by installing motion-sensitive lights and cameras at their home and engraving their vehicle identification number onto the converter.
Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
