Burgalries involving stolen car and stolen number plates

Alert message sent 06/12/2018 09:30:00

Information sent on behalf of Gloucestershire Constabulary

There is a national rise in stolen cars and stolen number plates.

This is being targeted by all police force areas as a priority.

We are asking the pubic to report any stolen cars and number plates as soon as possible so these details can be added to PNC ( Police national computer) once on our systems these number plates will register on ANPR ( Automatic number plate recognition) Most of these stolen vehicles are then being used in residential and commercial burglaries.

We will put out alerts of any number plates stolen that we know are being used in crime so the public can assist us in locating the offenders. These crimes are being committed by OCG's ( Organised crime groups)
This is a national problem and efforts are being made to bring these criminals to justice.

Many thanks,
PC 2201 Nick Westmacott
