Police have noticed an increase in reports of vehicle number plates being stolen or going missing.
“With the recent increase in robberies, we have noticed a similar uptick in reports of vehicle number plates being stolen. There are instances where persons have attached stolen vehicle number plates to getaway vehicles in order to frustrate the efforts of the police in tracking them down once they have committed a crime”, says Chief Superintendent Brad Ebanks.
Police are encouraging members of the public to immediately report any instances where their vehicle number plates have been stolen, have gone missing, or have been tampered with, to the police as soon as possible, especially if persons have CCTV footage available showing the culprits removing the plates.
Reports can be made at your nearest police station or 911, or if you witness suspicious activity, tips can be submitted via the RCIPS website.
