Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

MERCEDES-BENZ has developed a retrofit security device for the prevention of catalytic converter thefts on its Euro-5 Sprinters, follow ing an increasing trend of vans being targeted by metal thieves.

Leicestershire police has warned drivers to be vigilant following a spate of thefts in the Beaumont Leys area, with Sprinters comprising seven of the eight vehicles targeted for the high-value metal found inside the catalytic converters. The Catloc will prevent the exhaust system from being pulled from the vehicle.

The device will also include the International Security Register (ISR) marking and registering system as standard, which means that if an item is stolen, the identity of the vehicle can be verified immediately by calling the ISR. The Catloc costs £125, fully fitted, through Mercedes’ dealer network.
