More than 10 school buses in the metro had their catalytic converters stolen over the holiday weekend — leading to a delay on Monday morning for students and following a national trend.According to the Brooklyn Park Police Department (BPPD), the catalytic converters were stolen sometime between late Wednesday afternoon and Monday morning. Inspector Elliot Faust with the BPPD feels it was a crime of opportunity while no one was around.'I think the fact that [buses are] set a little bit higher off the ground gives those thieves better access to what they're looking for,' Inspector Faust added.
