Thefts of Catalytic Converters

Alert message sent 03/02/2020 15:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

TVP are seeing a rise in the theft of catalytic converters in and around Bracknell & Wokingham. Thieves are targeting a range of vehicles and specifically Honda Jazz’s in Bracknell. Offenders are using a trolley jack to lift vehicles and then cut away the converters from beneath them, typically wearing hi visibility jackets.

If you see anything suspicious and are able to safely do so, please record details such as registration numbers, type of vehicle and colour of vehicle being used by the offenders. If something does not look or seem right, please do not hesitate to contact us and if you believe a crime is in progress, please call 999.

Try parking your car close to fences, walls or kerbs with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb to make the theft more difficult. Avoid parking your vehicle half on the pavement and half on the road, as this may make it easier for thieves to access the catalytic converter.

Thank you.
