Catalytic converter theives

These professional crooks have been at it again targeting one of our Mercedes luton removal vans and stealing a catalytic converter exhaust and the ArmaCat Catalytic Converter anti-theft device they took the lot! also smashed the quarter light to gain entry in to the cab presumably to open the bonnet which they also damaged in the process. I think the only security is to have vans parked in well lit busy areas with your own movement protection cctv. Everyone in the trade and van sales has a story to tell about the theft of catalytic converters some having numerous stolen at a time, thefts have doubled over the last few years reported by BBC story everyone be vigilant the catalytic convert thefts are on the rise!
