Catalytic converter thieves are back in town

Tuesday, 2nd April 2013.

Police are appealing for witnesses after four vehicles had their catalytic converters stolen in the Haverhill area.

The thefts occurred overnight from Wednesday to Thursday March 27-28 at various locations.

The first theft was from a silver Mitsubishi Shogun which had been parked on the driveway outside a house in Osprey Road.

The next reported offence occurred at a business premises in Sturmer Road where thieves cut through a fence to gain access to the site and then removed the catalytic converter from a silver Mitsubishi Pajero.

The two other thefts were both also from silver Mitsubishi Shoguns parked on driveways one in Roman Way, Haverhill and the other in Brockley Green, Hundon.

If you have any information in relation to these crimes you should contact Haverhill police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Owners of vehicles with a high ground clearance, which are often targeted for their catalytic converters, are being reminded of the following crime prevention tips.

* Keep private vehicles in a well-secured garage where possible, and if no garage is available, in a well-lit public area.
* Park vehicles in such a way as to make access to the catalytic converter difficult, or parallel with another vehicle if you own one.
* Keep commercial vehicles in a locked building or compound.
* Use alarms, lighting and CCTV to deter thieves.
