Bury Street West is particularly being targeted for Theft of Motor Vehicles for Catalytic Converters. There
was an attempt to steal one in the street, but they managed to remove and steal some parts. Informant saw three males walk off towards the A10 and one of them was holding what appeared to be a catalytic converter. There was also an incident just around the corner in Little Bury Street, again a Catalytic Converter was stolen. Solna Road, N21 has been targeted twice this month they were Theft from Motor Vehicles.
The Bush Hill Park Police advise to park vehicles in a garage (if you have one). If not recommend driveway parking vehicles at an angle, against a wall or fence so that suspects cannot access the catalytic converter.
Suspects have been known to jack up the on street parked vehicles so that they can get underneath. I appreciate not everyone has the option of off street parking.
The local Police also advised of the option to make contact with the vehicle manufacturer to see if they could make the catalytic converter secure and prevent it being stolen.
I have attached an information sheet about catalytic converter theft. Not the best news – but thought it was important to be aware. The information sheets are also quite informative.
