Local Businesses Host Etch & Catch Event

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Sacramento Police Department is partnering with local businesses to host a free catalytic converter etching event where vehicle license plate numbers will be etched onto catalytic converters.

The event is scheduled to take place 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, August 8 at Jiffy Lube, 3424 Northgate Blvd., in the Gardenland/Northgate neighborhood.

License plate numbers on catalytic converters can help provide police with information needed to identify stolen property, contact victims, and apprehend and prosecute thieves who steal them for their valuable metal content.

This event is sponsored by Jiffy Lube, The Home Depot, Cal Signs, Office Depot, Church’s Chicken, Specialized Exhaust, and Starbucks Coffee. Space is limited and proof of Sacramento residency is required to participate.
