Thieves driving PX56 GFV Blue Vauxhall

At 1.10 pm today Mon 7th Oct catalytic converter thieves were seen in the act of jacking up my car, which had been parked in Hassocks Close. We interrupted them and they drove off but have broken the catalytic converter and done God knows what other damage.

There were 3 thieves and they were driving a pale blue Vauxhall registration number PX56 GFV. They drove off at considerable speed up Kirkdale towards Sydenham Hill or Thorpewood Avenue.

Sorry to hear this @marymck but pleased you manage to record the number plate. Let’s hope the police can act on this.

Another local catalytic converter theft was reported on July 31st in Devonshire Road.

It’s a trend unfortunately:
