Catalytic Converters Swiped Overnight

Several catalytic converters were taken from Toyota Sequoias around town.

Pleasanton Police are investigating a rash of overnight thefts of catalytic converters removed and stolen from Toyota Sequoias.

A letter from the Pleasanton Police Crime Prevention Unit to neighborhood block captains describes the details of the thefts.

Last night there was a rash of catalytic converter thefts in our city.  This happened in the middle of the night, and every victim car was a Toyota Sequoia.  Possible suspect description is a tall, black male adult in a dark colored vehicle (BMW or Honda type).

Please pass this on to your neighbors.  Toyota trucks have been a popular target for catalytic converter thefts due to their high ground clearance and accessibility of the catalytic converter. 

Thank you and stay safe,

Shannon Revel-Whitaker

CSO, Crime Prevention Unit

Pleasanton Police Department

According to Revel-Whitaker, the suspect vehicle may be lowered and the thefts were concentrated in the "Birdland area" of Pleasanton, which is off Valley Avenue, between Hopyard Road and Santa Rita Road.

Anyone with information about these thefts can call the Pleasanton Police Department at 925-931- 5100.

My next door neighbor had theirs taken in the past 6 months. They apparently are about $2000 to replace so there is probably a lucrative way for this fellow to make some side money
