Catalytic Converter Theft at the N. Concord BART Station

September 4, 2014 14:30 pm · 18 comments

On Wednesday, a BART rider reported the catalytic converter was stolen from his green 2001 Toyota 4Runner while it was parked at the N. Concord BART Station, in the lower lot.

The crime occurred between 9:15-6:15pm.

No suspect was located.

Toyota owners beware, this is happening a lot at BART stations.

A couple of years ago I had mine fixed for free at Toyota in Concord. I don’t remember if the PD was involved or not but it was when this was happening back then as well.

How about that, theft at the N. Concord BART station. Who would imagine such a thing!

I bet there would be less Catalytic Converter theft is the BART cops spent more time in the parking lot and less time at the Port Chicago Starbucks.

Its Toyota’s fault for using high grade platinum, no its the bushes need to be cut down, no they need cameras, BART Police are too busy singling out aspiring cRappers, my dog ate my homework. All the excuses and delusional solutions can and will follow, bottom line is we are always going to have the element of crime, especially in a Catch & Release State.
Be vigilant, if they look wrong they probably are (oh yes that evil profiling so hated because it works thing again).

Parking a Toyota SUV or parking/locking your bike at a BART station…you are asking for it!

get a dozen Treble Hooks; screw them to you CC. When Thieving Maggot grabs it he will get hooked up real good, the harder he squirms the tighter he’s snagged. Drive him over to PD by way of the RR tracks in Martinez…..

There is no practical way to prevent cat converter thefts, or catch the thieves. If you have a vulnerable vehicle you can only accept or reduce the odds – and be sure your insurance is paid up.

If caught, convicted and sentenced they’d likely do little jail time.

In 2011 democrats including Bonilla and DeSaulnier voted for and moonbeam signed AB-109 into law. Made CA state Prison overcrowding, the problem of the 58 Counties of CA.

Used to be County Jail was for up to a year ONLY, over that went to State Prison. Now convicted Felons are serving multi-year sentences in County Jails, forcing early release of misdemeanor property criminals to prevent unlawful overcrowding.

Law also changed sentencing on 500 crimes and any sentence given under AB-109 automatically gets cut in half.

Remember to thank “them” this coming November.

Great idea, too bad though. The scumbag would hire a lawyer and sue you. With that said, I’m going to the bait shop. Thanks for the idea.

this is getting a little bit boring every day crime at bart we get it why not send these to the city council and or post em on a national site to throw it in the cities face and maybe then they will do something ….I love claycord but reporting on stuff that will not be taken care of is getting redundant …IMO….as that is all it ever is

No security cameras in BART parking lots?

The funny thing is thieves get away, and if you try to stop them you risk jail time. how wonderful! :D
