TWO catalytic converters have been stolen from two different vehicles parked on a house’s driveway in Butlers Cross – all in the space of three days.

Both thefts took place in Chalkshire Road between 11pm on March 7 and 8am on March 9.

The second happened at 8.10pm on March 10, when the victim was alerted by his dog barking and heard a vehicle driving away.

On both occasions a hydraulic hand-held crimping tool was used to break off the catalytic converters.

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses of any suspicious activity in the area around the time of the thefts.
