PROTECT YOUR REGISTRATION PLATES
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.
