Cameraman Bruce asked tonight at public input at the Sioux Falls City Council meeting why the catalytic converters* were missing on the surplus cop cars and sheriff cars at the auction a few weeks ago. He wondered how they got ‘stolen’ in a secure public works lot. And why it wasn’t reported to the SFPD and investigated?


I guess the driveshafts were also missing on the old para-transit buses also and the flooded out lawn mowers from this Spring were on the auction to.

Once again, Hmmm.

*I guess these parts contain valuable platinum that can be sold as scrap

    This sounds like the scrap metal scandal from the Knobe era, huh?

  2. Quite certain it’s illegal to sell a car without one unless it’s be sold as scrap or recycle.

    They’re worth big bucks in states where there’s an inspection law. There’s platinum in them so they’re expensive to buy retail and in high demand used.

  4. LJL, the vehicles were sold AS-IS with titles to return them to the road. As I was speaking the mayor and city attorney strangly kept looking into the audience behind me, turns out the Police Chief and three officers in blue were sitting behind me.
