OLD TOWN — The Old Town Police Department is investigating a string of catalytic converter thefts.
Police said they are seeing the thefts at both residential and commercial properties.
Catalytic converters are targeted because they can be sold for hundreds of dollars at scrap yards.
The police department said some preventive measures you can take to avoid yours being stolen include parking in well-lit areas around buildings, avoiding leaving your vehicle in the same spot for an extended period of time, parking your car in a garage and having a home surveillance system.
If you have any information on the thefts or have had a catalytic converter stolen, please contact the Old Town Police Department at (207) 827-3984.
