Following a rise in thefts from vehicles in South Ayrshire local police officers are encouraging residents to be vigilant and vehicle owners to make full use of their vehicle fitted security features.

Safer communities officer for South Ayrshire, PC Jamie Dunlop, said: “Enquiries are ongoing into these recent incidents which have taken place in various areas of South Ayrshire. A number of catalytic converters have been stolen from Honda vehicles and we are appealing to anyone with information on those involved to contact us.

“We are also reminding drivers to review their security, to lock their vehicle in a garage if they can and to make full use of immobilisers and alarm systems.

“Even simple steps like parking overnight in a well lit parking area that is overlooked by CCTV or houses can help reduce the risk of falling victim to thieves.”
