CCTV image released after Cotgrave theft incidents

Police investigating the theft of catalytic converters from two cars have released CCTV images.

The vehicles were targeted in Cotgrave overnight on Wednesday 2 November to Thursday 3 November.

Neighbourhood officers have upped patrols and are asking for the public’s help as they investigate the thefts.

They have released these images of a Volkswagen Golf which is believed to have been involved.

Inspector Rob Lawton, Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Rushcliffe, said: “We are patrolling more regularly in Cotgrave following these thefts and are carrying out door-to-door inquiries.

“If any residents have CCTV I’d urge they check between the times of midnight and 1am on Thursday 3 November.”

The force received a call at around 8.30am on Thursday when a resident in Fir Dale reported a catalytic converter had been swiped from his vehicle during the night.

A short time later officers received another call, from a resident in Crosshill, to report that his vehicle had been targeted shortly after midnight.

Inspector Lawton said: “I’d like to remind people of the importance of making it as difficult as possible for criminals to target your vehicles.

“Where possible ensure your vehicle is parked on your driveway or in your garage if you have one. Alternatively, ensure you are parked in a well-lit area.”

Anyone with any information about the overnight incidents is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 122 of 3 November 2022 for the Fir Dale incident and 302 of the same date for the theft in Crosshill.

If you see any suspicious activity in your area, please report it immediately by calling Nottinghamshire Police on 101. If an incident is in progress call 999.
