After recent warnings to the public about a spate of catalytic converter thefts around Llanelli, Neighbourhood Watch warns that thieves are operating in the Dafen area.
Sometime between Wednesday 27th May and Monday 1st June 2015 a catalytic converter was stolen from underneath a van which had been parked up in New Road, Dafen.
Taller vehicles like vans and 4x4s are particularly vulnerable to this type of theft as the converters are more accessible. And because they tend to have larger engines, they contain more of the precious metals that make them so attarctive to thieves too.
If you run a car you need to be aware of the risk of catalytic converter theft, particularly if your car has large ground clearance. Catalytic converters, which help reduce harmful pollutants, have been fitted in the exhaust of the majority of petrol cars manufactured since 1992 and diesel cars since 2001. Theft of catalytic converters is on the increase because of the high value of the precious metals they contain.
