Barry was all set to go to work on Monday, he started up the car, the exhaust had blown, or so we thought…
Barry called the AA as we have Homestart, the AA man alerted us to the missing part!
Some thieving scumbag had cut off our catalytic converter with what the police believe to be those cutters that Fireman use to cut people out of cars. I suggested to the police lady that perhaps they were looking for a fireman then..she just laughed!
What a horrid thing to happen, apparently 3 more vehicles got hit on Sunday night, the first of it’s kind in our town. No doubt it’ll not be the last.
Barry put warning notices through the neighbours doors, we got lots of sympathy but no one could offer any help. The Colonel’s wife has put Otto, their puppy on scumbag duty!
The AA wouldn’t tow the vehicle away because it was damaged by a criminal event or something like that…
We are replacing the car and the garage we are purchasing from will come and get it for us so that’s not so bad. They are taking it ‘as is’ in part exchange, I can’t help but feel that we’d have got more for it if it was intact!
Barry is itching to get the new car home, but I won’t let it until it has one of those thief deterring cage thingies fitted, far too much heartbreak involved, especially as the Police told us that they come back and do it again when you’ve got the car fixed…
Here’s a couple of photos that Barry took of the crime:
We’ve both been really fed up about this all week, let’s hope that next week is a happier one!
Have a good weekend xx
