PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) - Jiffy Lube announced a partnership with multiple law enforcement agencies in the Portland metro area, offering a free service that aims to help prevent catalytic converter thefts.

Catalytic Converter thefts have risen exponentially in the last couple of years. This service paints a bright strip using high-temperature paint and then engraves the vehicle identification number or VIN into the catalytic converter.

This will make it easier for owners to recover their catalytic converters and easier for law enforcement to track and prosecute criminals.

The service takes less than 10 minutes and is being offered at no cost in 46 locations across Portland, Vancouver and Salem. Appointments are not required.
