These thefts cause substantial damage and cost to the injured parties.
The converters are stolen for their precious metal and are not easy to hide.
Gardai are urging people to report sightings of suspicious behaviour at vehicles immediately.
These thefts occur very quickly with those involved being very proficient in what they do.
Gardai are also advising people to speak to their vehicle dealership about what can be done to secure them and report those involved in stealing them.
