The whole thing happened on Monday during the day at the largest housing estate in Bratislava – Petržalka. In one of the parking lots in front of the apartment buildings, the occupant of a block of flats captured a truly remarkable situation. There were two men under the older blue SUV. Shortly afterwards, you can see in the video how one of them gets up from under the car and hands something to the man in the passenger seat. The video also shows another man looking around and seems to be “guarding”. In a few seconds, you can see how they pick up the catalytic converter from under the car, which they load into their car and run away from the place at lightning speed. Video from the crime scene is widely distributed on social networks. VIDEO The catalyst has disappeared in Bratislava’s largest housing estate: VIDEO captures what happened! What no one expected, however, the next day the men went to the police in the Border Square and carried the lost catalyst. He was taken to the district department of the police force in Petržalka and was testified. JOJ television was waiting for them in front of the police, but also the founder of the HAKA association, which deals with the search for missing cars – Štefan Farkaš. And both the media and Farkas’ men explained that they had not stolen any catalyst, but found it already dismantled under the car. “We are not dependent on us to steal. No one in our life has seen us steal. We are decent citizens, do you think I would be dependent on me to steal a catalyst for 89 euros? We did not rush from the place if I he stole, so I have a veil and a hat, “said one of the men in front of the police building. As he explained, the catalytic converter was taken from under the car so that no one would steal it and handed it over to the police. Earlier, however, they called the police late Monday night to announce that they had pulled the fallen catalytic converter from under the car in question. It absorbs exhaust gases from the engine in the cars, thanks to which the cars do not produce thick black smoke. It is for these reasons that they have been stealing a lot in recent times.

The car is tall. We wanted to prevent someone from stealing it, so we took it,” the men said, adding that under the car did not lie. They are said to be sorry for the whole affair. According to them, through an unnamed person, they managed to find contact with the owner of the vehicle, whom they subsequently called and informed him about the whole situation. “He said he had no reason to file a criminal complaint against us,” one of the men explained.

And we got a surprising answer. “In the case mentioned by you, an authorized member of the District Directorate of the Bratislava V. Police Force initiated criminal proceedings in the matter of the offense of theft. said Silvia Šimková, a spokeswoman for the Bratislava police.

According to Topky.sk, the men were supposed to “insure” themselves on Monday night and write a fictitious contract with the owner of the car with the missing catalytic converter. They published a photo of the contract for the sale of a car for 150 euros on the social network. Subsequently, they had to claim that the car belonged to them and did not steal the catalytic converter. However, they made it clear in their statement that they had contacted the owner of the vehicle and that he “has no reason to file a criminal complaint against them”.

However, how they got information about the owner of the car and the car itself is questionable. Many Slovaks commented on the case on the social network and did not believe the story of the men. It is said that the video shows one of the men lying under the car handing his friend the tools with which they had to dismantle the catalyst.
