Among the goods were roughly 400 ceramic core catalytic converters, both old and new, which two men were planning to transport out of the country, reports.

The converters are used to reduce exhaust emissions. The plating is made of precious metals such as platinum and palladium, which are also used to make jewelry. The price per converter can reportedly run into the tens of thousands of ISK.
