PUT SCREWS ON PLATE THIEVES

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch - - Of­fi­cer in charge Brett Reyne

THE theft of mo­tor ve­hi­cle li­cence plates is an emerg­ing crime. Num­ber plate theft has been linked to com­mit­ting fuel drive-offs, con­ceal­ing stolen ve­hi­cles and more se­ri­ous crimes. Some of my tips in­clude re­plac­ing the stan­dard screws with an­titheft/tam­per proof screws – they cost a lot less than re­place­ment li­cense plates – and re­mov­ing and stor­ing plates on long-term parked ve­hi­cles such as car­a­vans and trail­ers.
