This is the guy who is  allegedly taking catalytic converters from Beaumont [Hospital]staff car park. I am livid. I never ask for retweets but please retweet this.

    They did the same in our car park in work, the Garda arrived a mere 3 weeks after we reported it.

    You should have complained about being racially abused.
    They would have been round in a screech of tyres.

    There’s a lot of ads on Done Deal,Gumtree etc from auto trade and scrap dealers actively looking for catalytic converters…offering the highest prices…why aren’t the gaurds targeting these guys…without an active market this wouldn’t be an issue.

      Exactly, they’re only highly prized because there’s a market for them.
      Who’s the market? People who’ve had their catalytic converter stolen.
      They are supposed to last the lifetime of the vehicle.

    if anyone happens upon someone doing this to their car, just start shouting ‘FIRE’, ‘HELP’, ‘ATTACK’ etc, get everyones attention. These worthless scumbags are only tough when they think they can bully you one-on-one, they can’t do anything to a crowd. Get a photo if you think you can but never approach a scumbag holding tools.

      That reminds me of the defendant who stole a Purdey shotgun, value well north of £50,000, sawed it off with an angle grinder and used it to hold up a post office for about £400. The arresting officer spent most of the police interview calling him a stupid effing c-word.

    The Hospital should divert some of the money they receive from parking in the Public car park to finance a bit of security in this one.
    Disgraceful state of affairs, especially when it’s know it’s happening more than once.

    You can’t stop the scummers but the authorities ‘interacting’ with the scrap yards could end this very quickly, if they could be bothered.

    Jaysus. This is one of those things where the punishment should automatically be more severe than normal.

    The Gatdai need a good kick in the bottikins for their continued failure to deal with these crimes. It’s not rocket science to occasionally have a plain clothes Garda on site to nip these thug’s in the act. Secondly whatever waster that’s temporarily the Min for Justice should enact legislation, similar to the legislation some years ago that put the myriad of gold dealing shops out of business that were buying stolen gold from similar thug’s.

    It would be relatively straightforward to make the trade in platinum-group metals controlled by law with licensing requirements for all dealers, with fines and licence withdrawals for those not in compliance. It is the sort of regulation which inconveniences practically no-one for a very obvious benefit.

    Penny’s has a lot to answer for. Obviously a novice – no Canada Goose or tight Zara shorts.
