THE great tradition of police securing motorists’ number plates with free anti-theft screws remains alive and well.

More than 250 cars had their licence plates secured when Wanneroo and Ballajura police stations, helped by Neighbourhood Watch volunteers, held the crime prevention event in the carpark of Bunnings Wangara on April 21.

Wanneroo police boss Simon Hazell said it was great to see business and the community working together.

“Number plate theft is a contributing factor of fuel drive-off offences, theft from drive-thru bottle shops and more serious crimes,” he said.
