Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Catalytic converter thefts

There was a spate of catalytic converter thefts overnight from 23rd May 2021 to 24th May 2021 covering the areas from Sparkford to Bruton. We have been working with other forces who have been following information in order to make arrest attempts. The neighbourhood team have played a large part in bringing information together and completing house to house enquiries. We have been handing out the catalytic converter marking kits, which were advertised last month.
