The Pawhuska Police Department told the Journal-Capital there have been at least two fairly recent incidents in town, in which catalytic converters have been stolen off of vehicles. One incident involved a vehicle parked at the Pawhuska Hospital, and the other incident involved a Head Start vehicle parked near the intersection of Lynn Avenue and 15th Street. The two incidents would have taken place within a few blocks of each other.
