Police are investigating a spate of thefts across Fife.
Catalytic converters worth more than £5000 have been taken from parked vehicles in Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline and Inverkeithing.
Two of the thefts took place at busy Fife hospitals.
Vehicles were targeted in car parks in Inverkeithing on Wednesday, November 20.
Others were singled out at Kirkcaldy Railway Station, Victoria Hospital and Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline on Monday, November 25.
Police believe the vehicles were put on jacks in order to carry out the thefts.
They are hoping to trace the driver of a silver-coloured Vauxhall Zafira spotted at the scene of the incidents.
Catalytic converters are connected to exhausts and are used to filter out toxic gases before they are emitted into the atmosphere.
Thefts of the car parts are said to be soaring across the UK due to the presence of precious metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium in them.
Sergeant Conrad Musgrave of Dunfermline Police Station said: “We are appealing for the help of the public to catch those responsible.
“We are asking anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious at any of the car parks where thefts have occurred, or in any other area, to get in touch with us.
“At this time we want to trace the owner of a silver-coloured Vauxhall Zafira car which has been seen at the scene of these thefts.
“It is very likely that to carry out such a theft, the vehicle would be required to be jacked up off the ground at the rear.
“Anyone who may have seen any such activity around cars in car parks is also asked to call us.
“Callers can use the 101 number, and should quote the reference number 3422 November 20 2019.
“Anyone who wishes to pass on any information and remain anonymous can do so through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
