ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Drivers beware: thefts of catalytic converters are on the rise. They are being sawed off cars and carried away.

So far this year 17 catalytic converters have been stolen. They are being sawed off cars between Kishwaukee and 11th Street and Sandyhollow to Harrison.

There haven't been as many stolen since Valentine’s Day. Police suspect the platinum converters are being taken to out-of-state scrap yards.
