BRIGHTON, N.Y. – The Brighton Police Department teamed up with Metalico-Rochester to hand out catalytic converter ID kits on Saturday.

The event was held in response to an uptick in catalytic converter thefts. The kits included a non-destructible tag and etching fluid to engrave an ID number onto the car part. This will allow scrap yards to make sure thieves aren’t turning in the stolen parts for cash.
