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

Catalytic Converter Thefts

Reports have been received of Catalytic  Converter Thefts in the area.

Precious metals such as Rhodium, Platinum and Palladium are used the converters. The price of these has risen sharply  which has led to the increase in theft.

The most targeted are hybrid cars as they have 2 power sources so the  catalytic converter is used less frequently, hence the metals are less likely to corrode.

Please report any suspicious activity especially  where person(s) are seen paying particular attention to vehicles or properties. This would warrant a 999 call.
