Please see Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention Advice below:

To reduce the risk of having your catalytic converter stolen, you should:

- Park your car in a locked garage where possible, but if this isn't an option, then park in a well-lit area and well populated area.

- Park close to fences, walls or kerb with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb to make the theft more difficult.

- Where possible, avoid parking your vehicle half on the pavement and half on the road, as this may make it easier for thieves to access the catalytic converter.

- If parking in a public car park, consider parking alongside other cars and facing your bonnet towards the wall if possible. With the catalytic converter positioned at the front of your vehicle, this will make it harder for thieves to get closer enough to steal it.

- If your catalytic converter is bolted on, you can ask your local garage to weld the bolts to make it more difficult to remove.

- You can even purchase a 'cage clamp' which is a cage device that locks in around the converter to make it more difficult to remove.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously under a vehicle, Please report it to Staffordshire Police on '101' Non Emergency, via the Staffordshire Police website; https://www.staffordshire.police.uk/ or '999' Emergency if the crime is in progress or a life is in danger.
