Crime Alert -- Catalyic converters being stolen.

A crime alert to be aware of: over the weekend (Friday night - Sunday morning), someone stole the catalytic converter from the church van of Greater Institutional AME Church, 7800 S. Calumet.  

The van was securely parked in a fenced in area behind the church. However, it appears the thieves were easily able to climb the fence and steal the converter.

GIAMEC staff members said that vehicles such as vans and SUV's are particularly vulnerable, as thieves can quickly slide under and steal the converter. 

Also, it should be noted that we have had such thefts occur in the recent PAST.
Because of this theft, church members, as well as children of the daycare and summer camp program, are unable to go to activities. 

If you are interested in contributing to help the church repair their vehicle you may visit them at the address above or call them at 773-873-0880

Disclaimer: my daughter goes to the day camp, and has been prepared for school through the work of the teachers in the daycare program.
