BART police are reporting the theft of four catalytic converters in less than 12 hours at the North Berkeley station.

The thefts happened last Tuesday, between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. That makes 23 catalytic converters stolen systemwide, just this month. Authorities say the converters are targets for thieves because they contain precious metals including platinum.
