Possession, Selling or Transporting of Catalytic Converters Now Unlawful in North Las Vegas

NORTH LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The City of North Las Vegas made it unlawful to possess, sell or transport a catalytic converter removed from a vehicle without proper documentation. 

The city read the ordinance into Municipal code Wednesday. The ordinance also includes "any nonferrous part of a converter removed from a vehicle without proper documentation." 

The ordinance, however, allows exemptions "for any person or entity licensed as a junkyard, engaged in taking possession of a whole vehicle and subsequently removing a catalytic converter from that vehicle."
