"That bus gets a lot of work. And on a Sunday, it shuttles people back and forth from church that don't have transportation otherwise," Pastor Jon Middendorf said.

Thieves took off with the bus's catalytic converter.

Middendorf says this is the third time in about three years that this has happened to the church.

The catalytic converter is a small part on the underside of the vehicle.

Peters said the catalytic converter contains several valuable metals, including platinum.,0,4140183.story
