Gardai in Cavan investigating theft of a catalytic converter from a local car park

Gardai in Cavan are currently investigating the theft of a catalytic converter from a local car park.

The converter was taken from the underground car park at Drumalee on Monday 4th November between 9am and 1pm.

A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that can be stolen in two minutes from underneath a car and is of high value for scrap.

Gardaí have asked that if anyone is seen working under a car, SUV or van in suspicious circumstances it’s reported to your local Garda station.

Their advice is to always try to park your car in well-lit areas and not in quiet secluded spots where thieves often operate.
