WEYMOUTH  – The Weymouth Food Pantry is scrambling to continue running its mobile "pop up" pantry after the catalytic converter was stolen from the pantry's box truck.Pamela Denholm, executive director of the Weymouth Food Pantry, said the 18-foot truck was parked outside the Weymouth Food Pantry warehouse in Rockland when the converter was stolen.  An increase in the value of precious metals has made the car parts the target of thieves looking to strip them of rhodium, palladium and platinum, experts say.
