Rural Crime Officer P0243 (Police, Admin, Northamptonshire)

Overnight we have received several reports of catalytic converter thefts in villages around Towcester. 

Vehicles being targeted are pick ups such as Ford Rangers, Mitsubishi L200s and vans are also at risk as these vehicles are being chosen because of their high clearance from the ground.

Reduce the risk of theft of your vehicle's catalytic converter being stolen;

  • Garage your vehicle whenever possible
  • Park your vehicle in well lit and overlooked areas
  • Look out for people working under cars and report any suspicious people or vehicles in your area by calling 999 if a crime is in progress or 101 if it is not an emergency
  • Consider marking your catalytic converter with a unique mark or security marking kit to deter thieves and it can be traced back to your vehicle
  • There are also catalytic converter security locks and cages available
