The WSU Vancouver campus has experienced multiple catalytic converter thefts and several attempts over the past few months. Unfortunately the state of Washington has experienced a 10,000% jump in catalytic converter theft since 2019 (https://komonews.com/news-brief-newsletter/data-shows-10000-increase-in-washington-catalytic-converter-thefts-officials-weigh-in ) and WSU Vancouver is not immune to this crime. Catalytic converter thefts can take only minutes and perpetrators typically use portable electric saws and car jacks for quick access.
