Thieves Stealing Van Parts In Deepcar

Recommended Posts

I woke up this morning to find some thieving scroats had stolen the full exhaust system off my Mercedes Sprinter van .

 

They had the bare faced cheek to lay under the van and unbolt it right outside my front door on a main road sometime between 1am and 6am

 

They also damaged the turbo ,so im now left with a bill of over £2000 .

 

I just want to warn people in the area as i know three other people had parts stolen off their vans up here last night.

 

I hope the police get to them before i do .

They are probably after the precious metals in the catalytic converters.

 

This has been a problem for years, especially on Sprinters.

I beleive you can buy a special lock to secure the cat on these sprinter vans, my neighbour had his removed earlier in the year and he purchased one.

These catalytic converters can be very expensive. Even cheap cars second hand converters go for £100+ on ebay.
