CCTV appeal after catalytic converter stolen at Bristol business site
Policed have released CCTV footage of two men they wish to talk to in connection with a catalytic converter theft in Bristol. The targeted car was parked at business premises in Old Gloucester Road and had its catalytic converter stolen by thieves at approximately 3.30 pm on Tuesday, 6 September.
Officers are keen to identify two men, both wearing face masks, who were seen in the area with a Vauxhall Insignia, which it is believed to have false plates.
Detective Inspector Angela Burtonwood said: “Although catalytic converter thefts are not a new issue, we have seen an increase in the number of these thefts over the past couple of years, like other parts of the country.
“It’s a crime that can be committed within just a couple of minutes and the increasing value of metal is making catalytic converters an even greater target.
“The impact on victims is significant, because it makes their vehicle not road legal due to an increase in emissions, and can hit them in the pocket too because even if their insurance covers the repair cost, they are likely to face a higher premium in the future.”
Anyone who witnessed the catalytic converter theft in Bristol or recognises the two men is asked to call 101 and quote reference number 5222217592.
