Police in Diss are offering to security mark vehicle owners' catalytic converters after a recent theft.

A catalytic converter was stolen off a transit van at Roydon Service Station, over the weekend of August 14 and 15.

Officers are offering free crime prevention advice to garages and businesses, who own the medium sized vans that appear to be the most attractive to thieves.

Insp Gavin Money of the Diss Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) said: “Thefts of these catalytic converters has not been a huge problem in Diss but we are working to prevent any further incidents occurring.”

“By getting these items security marked means they will be worthless to thieves as they will be easily identifiable and therefore impossible to sell on.”
