Catalytic Converter Anti Theft Alarm

September 26th, 2013 Comments off

Van drivers in the West Midlands have been warned to be on guard for metal thieves, who are targeting catalytic converters.

PC Sean Lowe of the Dudley Police Local Priority Team says: “A number of vehicles are being targeted – particularly vans. So, to address this issue, we have launched Operation Boss Cat, to specifically tackle the persistent issue of catalytic converter thefts.

“In the current climate, and with precious metal prices still rising, the demand for parts that contain them is growing and the risk of theft of catalytic converters is on the increase again.”

Police patrols will step up their visits to theft hotspots and to scrap dealers in the region, and will also be offering free property marking of catalytic converters at several MOT garages across the borough, allowing officers to easily identify stolen car parts via ultra-violet light.

CatGuard is a Catalytic Converter Theft alarm.

CatGuard is fitted to a vehicle in less than an hour and if thieves attempt to remove the Catalytic Converter theft alarm will be activated. This will result in a 114 decibel siren or voice alarm giving a deafening warning along with a high intensity flashing strobe to drive the thieves away.

Haigh Transport Fit On Board Cameras From Supplier aide automotive ltd

Haigh Transport Ltd, based in Ellerton, near York, have fitted the MI Witness Forward Facing camera following a trial system supplied by aide automotive ltd.

Road incidents and cash for crash a concern for the road haulage industry. Haigh Transport have moved forward with installing Incident Cameras to protect against road criminals and also to help improve insurance claim evidence.

Tony, of Haigh Transport, said “I think on board camera systems will be a must for haulage operators in the coming years. We had an incident in Nottingham which I believe was a cash for crash, but without any evidence it is hard to prove. I first looked at low cost flip down cameras about a year ago, and following testing concluded the camera to be of low quality in hard & software. aide automotive presented a range of cameras suitable for our needs and progressed with a trial of the MI Witness camera. Once the footage was reviewed I had no hesitation in placing an order to cover the fleet. Camera technology is an ideal way for me, as the director of our company, to see what exactly happened within a road incident. I would recommend the MI Witness camera to any vehicle operator.”

Fuel Theft – Bus driver admits £9k

A bus driver steels thousands of pounds of Fuel from Bakers Dolphin over a three-year period.

The accused was fired by the Weston-based coach firm after 38 years service once the theft was discovered in April.

Michael Collins, prosecuting, told magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse on Monday that the bus driver had prompted suspicion by turning up to work regularly 30 minutes before he was due to start at 5.30am.

He would fill jerry cans with diesel before driving them back in his bus to his home in Highbridge. Having dropped them off, he would then start working and his criminal activity was not spotted because the early start meant he was never late.

He was caught after the firm installed extra CCTV cameras to his vehicle and checked vehicle logging records.

Upon arrest, he admitted taking an estimated £9,000 worth of diesel.
