Information sought on Worcestershire catalytic converter thieves
2:39pm Monday 14th May 2012 in Local
CRIME-fighting charity Crimestoppers is calling for information on catalytic converter thieves in Worcestershire.
The campaign is being run across West Midlands, with the aim of increasing the amount of information to Crimestoppers about thieves of catalytic converters and other metal.
Hundreds of “cats” have been stolen across the region, mainly from high vehicles such as 4x4s and lorriesas they are easier for the thief to get underneath.
Crimestoppers regional manager for West Midlands, Pauline Hadley, said: “Crimestoppers wants to encourage the public to fight back against the metal thieves, who are creating severe disruption for local people and costing millions to the UK economy.
“We want to scrap the metal thieves and those who care to help us by giving any information they might have about those stealing metal, anonymously, to Crimestoppers.
“We don’t want to know who you are, only what you know and you might even qualify for a reward, which is also paid anonymously.”
To pass on information about catalytic converter and metal thieves contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or through a secure online form at crimestoppers-uk.org
