Theft of catalytic converters from vehicles is on the rise across the country, including in the Fairbanks area. The exhaust system component contains precious metals that have spiked in value, and the units can be sold legally and illegally for as much as a thousand dollars. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
