Bimmers South Automotive Reports Theft of Catalytic Converter
It is the second such theft to occur at the business in as many months.
Someone entered the property through a hole in a fence and took a catalytic converter, fifteen radiators/condensers and twelve aluminum intake manifolds, according to an Oconee County Sheriff's Office incident report.
The total loss is estimated at $2,200. Two vehicles were also damaged in the process, and the cost to repair them is an additional $2,200.
A similar incident was reported at the end of October.
In that case, a chain link fence on the far end of the property was cut and a catalytic converter was removed from a BMW.
