Lodi scrap thieves are preying on catalytic converters — especially those in Toyota trucks and sport utility vehicles. While the Lodi Police Department regularly receives calls from victims wanting to file a theft report, this week has seen a spike in activity.

Nine separate incidents of catalytic converters being ripped from vehicles were reported Wednesday. The result is vehicles scattered around the community in need of sometimes thousands of dollars in repairs. Six of the nine thefts reported Wednesday took place in the rectangle formed by Lodi Avenue, North Church Street and Turner and Lower Sacramento roads, according to police reports.
