Both front and rear number plates were stolen from a second Holden Barina overnight the following evening. Sandgate Police officer in charge Senior Sergeant Helen Barnett reminded residents of the benefits of attaching One Way Screws to their number plates. “One Way Screws can be obtained from the front counter of most police stations. These screws require special equipment to secure or
remove number plates to vehicles, tools not available to the general public. Stolen number plates are generally placed on other vehicles intended for use in criminal activity. Members of the public can prevent further offences simply by securing these One Way Screws to their cars,” Senior Sergeant Barnett said.
