The theft of catalytic converters is sadly getting more common, and the latest one, from a Honda Jazz which was parked on Cavendish Road, Bournemouth, was reported at around 10.45pm on Tuesday 25 May.
Officers attended and a collision occurred involving a police vehicle and a car that was suspected to be involved in the theft. However, the occupants fled the vehicle.
A search of the area was carried out, assisted by the NPAS helicopter, but the offenders were not located.
Investigations officer Max Surman, of the Priority Crime Team, said: “We believe the offenders may have ran through the gardens of properties on Landsdowne Road and Cavendish Road.
“I am appealing directly to residents in that area to please check their home CCTV systems for any relevant footage.
“I would also like to appeal for anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the vicinity or may have information to assist my enquiries to please get in touch.”
