Meth Money

Stolen Catalytic Converter in NE Portland

Great to wake up and use your friends truck you borrowed and it sounds like a boat engine being fired up. Friggin' crack addicts. Why doesn't someone go after the metal salvage people.

I am sick and tired of meth addicts. I had my C.C stolen last night and only wish I would of caught them. Would not be a citizen arrest. I hate a thief. Scum of the earth.

Some dope fiend tried to steal my cat. conv. this morning. I caught the guy in the middle of this procedure. He claimed to be some vagrant looking to get out of the rain as I caught him lying under my truck. I had no idea that this person was up to.

where are these guys buying c.c's out of a truck on the corner. ? come on, Its the greed of the scrap industry and the ongoing addiction to meth that is the perpetrator here. Not some mysterious platnum pusher hanging around by the grade school.

It's not the scrap metal recyclers, it's these guys doing business on the corners, running a business out of the back of there trucks, and the city of portland has done nothing to shut them down. Why don't you ask portland police they know about it.

Why doesn't someone go after the metal salvage people? Is this industry so hard to regulate in Oregon. Seems there are fewer of them than pawn shops. It really shouldn't be that hard. how about etching your name in the C.C?

Happened to us too using the MAX station at the Expo Center. So frustrating and expensive.

I have to agree for the metal thieves - I'm ready to support Islamic law for theft...! Catalytic converters, playground equipment, statues, phone lines... Cut off their (right) hand!

Had mine stolen, too. I am about ready to support Islamic law for theft...!
