Catalytic Converter Thieves active in Bishops Cleeve and Tewkesbury

Alert message sent 17/09/2021 14:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Catalytic converter thieves have been active in Bishops Cleeve recently. Two vehicles were effected during the night of 15th and 16th September.  One incident, partially captured on CCTV, occurred in Cutsdean Close at around 11.10pm where 2 males were seen to jack up the car and remove the Cat and drive off in a silver coloured car. The other occurred in Stoke Road sometime between 11pm and midnight.

There was also a similar incident in Queens Road in Tewkesbury where the offenders were disturbed at around 10.30pm.  Three offenders had jacked up a car but fled when they were disturbed by the owner.

It only takes a few moments to remove the catalytic converter for a car with power tools and they are very expensive to replace.  Cat converters can be secured to the vehicle using a cage or shield that can be fitted by most garages.  It is also advisable to park your car in well-lit locations and as close to your home as possible after darkness has fallen.

If you have any information regarding these crimes then please call 101.  Alternatively you can report the information at

You can also report information about criminal activity anonymously to CrimeStoppers by calling 0800 555111 or online at

Please report any suspicious activity straight away and if you believe a crime is being committed dial 999 immediately.
