Spate of catalytic converter thefts

Daily Echo: A catalytic converter A catalytic converter

DETECTIVES are investigating a spate of catalytic converter thefts across Hampshire.

Twenty vehicles have had the pollution- busting devices prised off in just six weeks.

Seven of these were in the Shirley district of Southampton in the space of one week.

Det Insp Martin Myers, from Eastleigh CID, said the precious metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium are sold to scrap metal merchants for hundreds of pounds.

The converters are the latest to be targeted by metal thieves who have struck across the south.

Yesterday the Daily Echo revealed that commuters had suffered an extra 1,600 train delays in the region in just ten months after thieves stole copper cabling from railway signalling boxes.

And last month we reported how ten sets of metal gates had been stolen from driveways across Southampton.

Det Insp Myers said: “The prices of metals have gone through the roof, with the metal going abroad to places such as Latvia, Poland and China.”

Larger cars and 4x4s have been targeted by thieves who use saws to remove the converters in as little as 30 seconds.

Police say organised gangs could be behind the spree but could not rule out opportunists looking to make easy money.

The latest theft reported was from a Peugeot 406 in Southampton Road, Eastleigh.

Police believe bigger vehicles are especially at risk because they are high off the ground and easier for thieves to slide underneath.

Anyone with information can call their local police on 101 mentioning Operation Wellington or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No doubt we'll get the usual mob moaning that it's due to Police cuts as they expect an officer on every single street corner at any one time!

Get ready...............

Surely it will be cheaper for Tax payers for the UK to double if not triple our prison spaces.

Lock up more crims, take away the perks whilst inside and get them off the streets once and for all.

The system isn't working as it is because these crims know they will either get away with a slapped wrist or spend a week at Butlins.

More prisons and get rid of them off the streets. Whilst they're inside, treat them like school kids, classes all day to try and educate the muppets!

Well if they couldn't get money for it they wouldn't steal it. Thieves took something off one of our vehicles with our name on it - some scrap dealer bought it knowing full well it had been nicked. If the scrappy had been honest we'd have got it back, saved a fair bit of money and the thieves would have been done for theft.

Lock up the buyers too!

My issue is, everyone knows they can get away with crime! I have NEVER been in trouble with the Law, have a clean record etc, but know **** well that if I go and commit a crime, based on my record I would get away with it!

its the metal dealers who are just as much to blame, surely they understand when car parts, led from churches, copper from signal boxes and ASDA trolleys that its highly likely to be nicked, instead of wasting time looking for part time thiefs they should sting the metal dealers and be watching what is deported from our docks.

You state that you have never been in trouble with the law but, I seem to recall one of your past rants, if I’m not mistaken, where you confessed to a driving conviction, of course it wasn’t your fault, but doesn’t your motoring conviction count as being "in trouble with the law" or just like your evil namesake does selective memory kick in when on your high horse putting the world to rights about things you Know very little about.

I look forward to reading your denials.

If your selling scrap metal then you should have to produce your driving licence and passport. Your vehicle registration should be taken and a photograph of the seller. If there is any discrepency between the 2 documents then you should not be able to sell the scrap. It's not difficult really is it? Human rights should not apply here. Human decency should! I'm also sure that China doesn't give a fig where the metal comes from.

Excuse me guv, I was just clearing out my shed when I found a dozen catalytic converters, 500 metres of copper coax cable and 40 sq m of lead roofing. Would you be interested in them as scrap?

Unfortunately, I am aware of one scrap dealer locally who would take your word on that (not saying which one here) but most are responsible enough to question anything TOO dodgy. So, they might take one catalytic converter, but not several together.
