Vehicle Criminal Damage - Kingsclere

Alert message sent 29/10/2020 08:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Good morning,

I'd like to make you aware of the following:

Sometime between 26/10/2020 23:45 and 27/10/2020 01:00, unknown offender(s) have attempted to steal a catalytic converter from a vehicle parked at a Business Park in Kingsclere. That vehicle and several others were damaged in the process. A Toyota 4x4/people carrier type vehicle was possibly involved.

If you have any information that could assist Police, please either go online using this link https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/, ring 101 if urgent or reply to this alert quoting 44200417481.

Thank you.

Crime Prevention Advice:

The precious metal in catalytic converters has led to an increase in their theft. To keep yours safe, ask your car dealer if they can give you any advice on locks or guards that are approved by the vehicle manufacturer. Alternatively, try to make sure your vehicle is parked in a garage overnight, or if you have a commercial vehicle park it in a secure compound. If this isn’t possible, park in an area that’s well-lit and overlooked and try to park so that the convertor can’t be easily reached by potential thieves. Vehicles that sit high above the road are particularly vulnerable. You should also register your converter and mark it with a forensic marker, which will make it harder for thieves to dispose of. Visit Secured by Design for more details.
