Free catalytic convertor engraving

LINCOLNSHIRE Police are stepping up their fight against catalytic convertor thieves with another series of free engraving days.

Following the success of previous events, the police have teamed up with two garages in South Holland to offer people another chance to protect themselves from theft.

Sgt Stuart Brotherton said: “These thefts are becoming more and more common and we want to do everything we can to deter criminals.

“We’ve teamed up with these garages to offer people the chance to get their catalytic convertors engraved for free.

It takes five minutes and will make thieves think twice.

“Two of the latest targets were Kia Sorrentos, both parked in Villa Close in Lutton, on Sunday night. Handheld pincers were used.”

To take advantage of this offer, all you have to do is cut out the coupon in the current edition of the Spalding Guardian and take it along to one of the four participating garages on the date specified.

Garages taking part are:

• Rylatt Ford, Elsoms Way, Pinchbeck – March 14, 1.30pm-4.30pm.

• First Stop (Kingsway Tyres), Pode Hole – March 21, 1.30pm-4.30pm.
