The theft of plates usually leads to further more serious offences such as petrol drive offs, avoiding fines, burglaries and drug trafficking.

Police are recommending securing number plates with anti theft screws and parking securely either in a locked garage, off the street, or a well lit area.

The theft of plates must be reported immediately to your local police station, insurance companies and organisations such as CityLink must also be notified of changes in registration.

Over 10,000 number plates are stolen every year in Victoria alone.
