    They're back at it... 😡  In recent months the Seymour Police Department and several surrounding agencies have seen a resurgence in catalytic converter thefts from the exhaust systems of vehicles in the nighttime hours. 🚗🌌  Most of these thefts are conducted using a cordless electric Sawzall type reciprocating saw with a metal blade. Thieves can remove the converter in a matter of minutes and then sell the converter to metal scrapyards for a few hundred dollars due to the precious metals inside. There are safeguards to prevent this, but thieves may travel to turn in the converters at different locations to reduce the chance of being caught.  Please report ALL suspicious activity at night (strange vehicles in the area, people observed loitering in dark lots, people with power equipment at night, sounds of sawing, flashlights/ people under vehicles at night) and be vigilant of your vehicles, specifically gas-powered larger trucks / work vehicles with a high ground clearance and hybrid vehicles.  We urge citizens to take additional steps to protect their vehicles:
    -park in well-lit areas at night
    -park in a secure garage when possible
    -park near your residence
    -check your vehicle often
    -use surveillance systems
    -park near your home
    -consider etching the vehicle VIN on the converter #theftisntcool #handsoffmyconverter #unwantedmechanics #police #seymour #seymourpd

    They’re too lazy to do actual work..... even $10.00 will get them high for a few minutes. They can’t be evicted right now because of Rona; plenty of food pantries; gas cards or bus cards are free at Love Chapel; utilities can’t be shut off due to Rona. So there ya go !!

    Rhonda Ayers Wilson up north, we have to, if we turn in a cat, scr, dpf, or anything similar, we have to prove what it came off of, and prove we replaced it. Otherwise the yards won't take them.

    I dont even understand why, steel prices have been at an all time low
    2 days ago Daniel Thorneycroft 1
    Shane Shubert Catalytic converters contain some very precious metals, and depending on what kind of vehicle it is on, can bring in a substantial amount of money (talking upwards to 500-600 $$)
    2 days ago Shane Shubert
    Daniel Thorneycroft I know that, its the platinum, but those prices even fluxuate with the economy and follow current steel prices to a degree.
    2 days ago Steve Curry 1
    They are not after the steel. The substrate or brick has several precious metals. The wrap or mat around the substrate also carries value if not harmed. -Faurecia exhaust engineering.

    Shane Shubert I’ve never been able to wrap my head around it either. All the hard work they put into selling something, they would have just worked an actually job and got the money 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Meth people, it's to buy drugs. They can't pass a drug test for work and they don't care about the current price of metals. They sell it for scrap and hit the drug house.
    2 days ago Tim WAtson 2
    It's not only people that use meth or any other drugs that are stealing them. I hate that every time something like this comes up people are so quick to put all the blame on people that use drugs. You all act like no one else is capable of doing this.

    The Seymour Police Department would like to take a moment to bid farewell to Sergeant Jake Florine as he has made the difficult decision to pursue other career ventures.   Sergeant Florine has served with Seymour Police Department for the past eight years with honor, integrity, and a steadfast dedication to our community. He will be gravely missed as a mentor, brother, and asset to our capabilities here at SPD.   Godspeed, Sergeant Florine 🇺🇲

    The Seymour Police Department is attempting to locate Bethany Coomer (19 y/o female) regarding her involvement in the recent shooting incident on North Ewing Street in Seymour. We believe Coomer is aware and may be attempting to evade law enforcement at this time. Her last known location was in the North Vernon area.  Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Coomer is asked to contact Seymour Police Department at 812-522-1234. *Coomer is wanted for questioning at this time and is presumed innocent of any crime unless and until convicted of such in a court of law*

    Chris Wiese it was a 61 year old man involved in a domestic situation with a man who everyone at the scene said caused it and that the older gentleman just defended himself. But yeah let’s compare that to a young girl who thinks hanging out with street guys and shooting guns makes her tough

    5 days ago Chris Wiese 2
    He pushed the guy. But even before they had already been feuding and the old man said he would kill him. And what happened? He killed him in front of his children. It should of been a premeditated charge.

    she should have called the cops that night and told them the mess all these people were in and if she would’ve stayed there and in her car instead of driving away she probably wouldn’t be in this mess. Whether or not she knew what was happening, cops will consider that accessory to the crime for being there and driving off.
