Police warn of Catalytic Coverter theft
Police in North East Derbyshire have asked BusinessWatch to advise members of a spate of catalytic converter thefts from commercial vehicles in the area.
Recent incidents in Langwith and Killamarsh, couped with several other similar thefts in the Eckington and Duckmanton areas have prompted the Police to warn drivers to be vigilant.
BusinessWatch would like to offer the following advice:
- Keep vehicles in a locked garage, whenever possible
- Park in a well lit area
- Consider installing CCTV and Security Lighting on your premises
- Avoid parking near trees or bushes which provide cover for thieves
- Fit a protective cover to make your catalytic converter harder to steal
- Fit Security Marking or Etching to your catalytic converter
- Make your neighbours aware so they can keep an eye out - suggest that they join BusinessWatch
- Report suspicious activity to BusinessWatch for us to transmit to your neighbours
