Alert message sent 17/12/2020 10:22:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


The catalytic converter was stolen off a car parked in Grayson Close Tewkesbury sometime over the weekend of 12th & 14th December. The vehicle was parked on the road outside the owner’s house.  Two vehicles had their catalytic converters stolen while parked in Nut Orchard Lane in Twyning on the night of 14th and 15th December. 

The owners of these vehicles are now faced with a large repair bills. 

The theft of these devices is occurring frequently at present probably due to the value of the special metals used in the manufacturing process, and with the right equipment it only takes a few minutes to remove a cat converter.

To make the theft of these devices more difficult consider:
  • Keeping your vehicle in a garage when possible
  • Parking in such a way as to make access to the underside of your vehicle difficult
  • Parking in busy or well-lit areas
  • Using a Park Mark safer parking approved car park. You can find one near you by visiting: www.parkmark.co.uk/car-park-finder
  • Looking out for people working under cars in unusual locations such as car parks or individuals who are acting suspiciously
  • Fitting a Thatcham approved alarm system- the type that activates when the vehicle is lifted or tilted
  • Using a catalytic converter protection device or marking system
Please call 101 if you have any information regarding these thefts.  Alternatively report information on line at https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/something-youve-seen-or-heard/
