A TRIO of catalytic converters were stolen from vehicles within a mile of each other in Bromsgrove Town Centre during a 72-hour crime spate.
All three cars were targeted between Tuesday and Wednesday, (September 17 and 18).
The part was stolen from a Black Toyota Hilux on Mount Vernon Drive some time between 7.30am on the Tuesday and 4.30pm the following day.
Another Hilux was hit on Millfield Road between 6.30pm on the Tuesday and 8am on the Wednesday where thieves removed a 1ft section of exhaust along with the catalytic converter.
During a similar period of time a third vehicle, a blue Peugeot 406, had the part stolen in Willow Road.
A West Mercia Police spokesperson said officers were not linking the incidents at this time.
Police are also appealing for information on two other incidents which occurred in the previous 24 hours.
Between 6pm on Monday (September 16), and the same time the following day, thieves removed a padlock and plastic covered chain securing access to a yard in Hewell Lane, Tardebigge.
In a similar offence, between 8pm and 6.15am on the same days, another locked yard on Rowney Green Lane was broken into and vandals cut batteries from four lorries and a digger.
They also cut a padlock to an outbuilding and attempted to steal copper wiring, a socket set, strimmer and gas cutting equipment.
Items were found in a ditch in a field next to Rowney Green Lane.
Anyone with information on any of the above incidents should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
