Three men have been arrested in total by police officers following a proactive operation tackling catalytic converter thefts across west London.
Operation Sandcat was conducted over a two day period and involved a number of officers who engaged in a variety of activities, involving patrols in hotspot areas and targeted intelligence-led work.
The highlights of the two days were an arrest after a pursuit of a vehicle, which had cloned registration plates displayed and an arrest of a man who was in possession of stolen Audi worth approximately £35,000.
Further arrests were made for drivers driving whilst disqualified as well as fraud offences.
Inspector Owen, who led the operation said: “We are pleased with the results that we have achieved over the two days of our operation. I wish to thank the community, our partners and residents who play a key part in identifying offenders.”
“I urge you to keep contacting us and providing us with information. We need your to help to continue to arrest, prosecute offenders and reduce crime.”
