Do you own a Ford Galaxy or Seat Alhambra?

Thames Valley Police have pointed out that these vehicles are currently being targeted by thieves who are stealing catalytic converters. Where possible please park your vehicle inside a garage or in such a position that makes access to the exhaust more difficult.

Offences are occurring overnight, most recently 5 vehicles were attacked in Buckingham. It is believed that the offenders are ignoring other vehicles and are likely to be travelling around prior to the theft looking for vehicles to target.

If anyone is seen in unusual circumstances, underneath vehicles, interfering with the exhaust system please ring 999 as this may well be a crime in progress.
