Get your catalytic converter 'etched' to help make them traceableBy: Staff report
There will be free catalytic converter etchings done from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, at Palladio in Folsom.
Like hundreds of people in the Sacramento Valley have discovered, catalytic converters are like gold to thieves. Once yours is gone, it's completely untraceable. By etching the part, you can change all that, according to the Folsom Police Department.
At the Palladio in Folsom, during the Police Motor Skills Challenge, volunteers from the Police CAPS program and the Folsom Lake College Administration of Justice Club will be etching catalytic converters on trucks and sport utility vehicles (underside clearance is required). This service is free, first come, first serve, although non-perishable food donations are encouraged and will be accepted on behalf of the Folsom Twin Lakes Food Bank.
The catalytic converter etching program is made possible through the assistance of Lowe's Home Improvement and the Folsom Lake College AJ Club.
