Three in court charged with catalytic converter theft

Three men are due in court charged in connection with a reported attempted theft of a catalytic converter.

The men aged 22, 27, and 30 are to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (Friday 11 November 2022) charged with attempted theft.

One man is also charged with dangerous driving, driving with no insurance, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and the fraudulent use of a registration mark/document.

It comes after a report of three men allegedly trying to steal a catalytic converter from a car in the Radford area of Nottingham shortly before 8.15pm on Wednesday (9 November 2022).

Inspector Sharonjit Powar, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Catalytic converter theft can have a significant impact on victims as repairs can be costly and time spent without a vehicle can make it difficult for victims to go about their daily lives.
