Elk Grove police offer free catalytic converter etching Sunday

The Elk Grove Police Department and Jiffy Lube will team up to conduct a free catalytic converter etching event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

During the "Etch and Catch" event at Jiffy Lube, 9611 Auto Center Drive in Elk Grove, vehicle owners can have their vehicle's license plate number etched on the catalytic converter. The etching may deter thieves from stealing the converter, according to a Police Department news release. License plate numbers on catalytic converters also provide law enforcement officers with information needed to identify stolen property, contact victims and apprehend criminals.

The Etch and Catch event is open people from all communities and no appointment is necessary. The service will be provided on a first-come, first served basis.
