The exhaust system and catalytic converter were stolen from a parked Mercedes van on Mansfield’s Westdale Lane.

It happened between 1am and 6am on 12th February.

Catalytic converters, which help a vehicle reduce its emissions, are often stolen because of the precious metals they contain.

Police advise motorists to fit an appropriate alarm that is triggered if a would-be thief attempts to steal the component.

Contact police on 101 if you have any details.
