A MAN and woman worked in uni­son to steal al­co­hol from a liquor store in Vic­to­ria Park. At 10.50am on Sun­day, Septem­ber 21, a man en­tered a liquor store on Al­bany High­way and ap­proached the counter. Po­lice said he cre­ated a dis­trac­tion, which al­lowed a woman to en­ter the store and se­lect two bot­tles of Jim Beam from the shelf and leave the store, mak­ing no at­tempt to pay for them. The man then left the store soon after. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of two peo­ple (above) who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. PO­LICE are still re­ceiv­ing re­ports about reg­is­tra­tion plates be­ing stolen from mo­tor ve­hi­cles. While this may seem like a mi­nor mat­ter, the op­po­site is in fact the case. More of­ten than not, the stolen plates are placed on a dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cle and then that ve­hi­cle is used to en­gage in var­i­ous crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties. A sim­ple but ef­fec­tive method of re­duc­ing the chance of your plates be­ing stolen is to have spe­cial fas­ten­ers at­tached that make it very dif­fi­cult for the plate to be re­moved, un­less you have the ap­pro­pri­ate tool (most of the ma­jor hard­ware stores carry th­ese items). If you do have your reg­is­tra­tion plates stolen, you should re­port the mat­ter to po­lice im­me­di­ately. Re­mem­ber you can follow Bel­mont Po­lice on Twit­ter: @Bel­mont Pol. – Se­nior Sergeant Peter Arancini Bel­mont Lo­cal Polic­ing Team The man is de­scribed as be­ing dark­skinned of solid build with short brown hair with a beard.
