Warning to Sutton drivers as thieves target catalytic converters
Six catalytic converters have been stolen from underneath cars.
The devices, situated in the exhaust system under the cars, contain precious metals of high value.
Since October 20 thieves have targeted three Ford Galaxy cars and three Seat Alhambra cars – both multipurpose vehicles that look similar to each other.
The Metropolitan Police has a specialist team now looking into the thefts.
Police are urging drivers to be vigilant, parking their cars in garages or well lit areas. They also advise marking catalytic converters with anti-theft liquid to make it easier to trace if stolen.
Report any suspicious behaviour to police on 999 immediately.
