    Lutterworth and Broughton Astley
    It was a busy start to 2021 with an unusually high number of vehicle related incidents occurring in Broughton Astley, Lutterworth and the surrounding villages. As well as vehicles being stolen, there were a number of thefts of registration plates and catalytic converters. Thieves simply cut the catalytic converter from the exhaust pipe of a parked car and sell them on to scrap metal dealers.
    We are doing all we can to find those responsible for these offences and have increased visibility through additional patrols. You can help us by reporting any suspicious behaviour. Please be assured that we will take your call seriously and what you see may be invaluable and help us prevent and detect crime.
    We are advising drivers to follow the following crime prevention advice to help protect their vehicles from theft of catalytic converter.
    • Keep your vehicle parked in a garage if possible.
    • Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to these.
    • Consider CCTV/ PIR security systems or lighting where you park your vehicle.
    • If your catalytic converter is bolted on, consider having the bolts welded.
    • Fit protective coverings on catalytic converters, such as the Toyota CATLOC.
    • Have your catalytic converter etched or forensically marked and put stickers in the
    • windscreen to say this has been done.
    • Car parks with a Secured Car Park sign have recognised levels of security.
    • Noisy gravel on your drive can help deter a would-be thief.

    Throughout January, officers have recovered several vehicles in Lutterworth and Broughton Astley
    for not having insurance, tax or a valid MOT. We have also recovered vehicles that were on cloned plates.

    Lutterworth officers were called to investigate a burglary and the theft of a car. Due to the beat team's excel-lent community relations, we were able to be in the right place at the right time.
    Unfortunately, the suspect didn't want to stop for police. He rammed into the police vehicle. Fortunately no one was hurt.
    He was caught a short time later and arrested. During the investigation, the male was charged with driving whilst disqualified, driving over the limit and a taking without consent (TWOC) offence. The male has faced the courts and has been remanded into custody.
