A POLICE scheme to get catalytic converters engraved following a spate of thefts in the Stamford and Bourne area has started.

Police teamed up with the Hindmarch Peugeot garage in Stamford to engrave catalytic converters on Tuesday.

Police community support officer Amanda Matson said: “It was a really positive day and we were inundated with requests for engraving. We did between 15 and 20 cars in total so the day was a success.

“Catalytic converters are being targeted at the moment due to the value of selling them on for scrap metal. Anything that lets you track the converters or deters thieves from stealing them is beneficial for people to have done.”

Officer Matson thanked Hindmarch staff for their help on the day.

Police were also engraving converters at Bush Tyres in Bourne.
