Theft of number plates - 7403

Alert message sent 18/07/2019 13:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good Afternoon all,

There have been recent incidents in the area whereby number plates have been stolen from vehicles. 

Number plates are often stolen to use on other vehicles as a disguise, for example in the execution of a crime.

You can secure your plates by removing the original screws and replacing them with 'tamper proof' screws. These are significantly harder to remove and would require a drill in doing so. Many garages offer to fit anti-theft plates also.

Please remain vigilant to this activity, and report any concerns to Bedfordshire Police using the online reporting tool, or calling 101.

Kind Regards,

PCSO 7403 Hirst.
