Theft of number plates

Alert message sent 29/02/2020 08:21:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Good Morning,
 Between 1700 21/02/20 and 1500 27/02/20 number plates have been stolen from a parked vehicle.
If you have any information or witnesses this incident please ring 101 and quote 44200076086.  Should you have information and wish to remain anonymous please ring Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111

Pleas folow the advice below.
Park your car in a garage at night or park to prevent access to either front or rear number plate.
Park in a safe public car park.
If parking on a public road, park in a well-lit spot.
Use theft resistant number plates, which are designed to break apart if they are forcibly removed from a vehicle (see right).
Fit security screws. Simple anti-theft devices can be easily fitted with a screwdriver in place of existing screws, but cannot be removed using standard tools (use correct security screws appropriate for the pre-existing number plate screw size and application).
Ask members of the public to contact police if they notice a car with different number plates on the front and the back of the vehicle.

kind regards,
