NUM­BER PLATE THEFT ON THE RISE

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

The theft of mo­tor ve­hi­cle li­cence plates is an emerg­ing crime. Num­ber plate theft has been linked to con­ceal­ing stolen ve­hi­cles that are used to com­mit more se­ri­ous crimes. Po­lice rec­om­mend mo­torists se­cure their plates with anti-theft and tam­per-proof screws. New screws cost a lost less than re­place­ment li­cence plates. Ve­hi­cles parked for long pe­ri­odsshould have their plates re­moved and stored se­curely. - Sergeant Paul Gelmi
