Police urge number plate check after a spate of thefts

POLICE are reminding motorists to check their number plates after a spate of thefts in Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

A Maryborough police spokeswoman said the cars were locked and secured at homes at night when thieves have unscrewed and stolen the plates.

"Remember there are plenty of options, including one way screws which you can purchase from most hardware or auto stores," she said.
