Vehicle Crime

Alert message sent 17/12/2019 17:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good evening Members,

This is a quick message to let you know that we have had a spike in the number of vehicle crime on the area. One of the crimes is the theft of car number plates where car plates have been taken from the vehicle and used to clone another vehicle which is then used in crime.

If you find yourself getting speeding tickets from areas where you have not visited! Please get in touch with the police as your car number plates may have been cloned.

Also to tackle this issue we have at Spinney Hill Police Station have behind the front enquiry desk some anti-theft number plate screws which are free for anyone who wishes to have them. These screws are unique in a way that they allow the number plate to be fixed to the car but cannot be loosened after.

Please feel free to pop in to Spinney Hill police Station and pick some up!

Stay Safe!
