Theft of vehicle licence plates on the rise- RVIPF

Police are urging persons with disabled or inoperable vehicles along roadsides or in unsecured lots whether temporarily, or permanently to secure their licence plates.
According to a press release from the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) this morning, February 1, 2023, the Force has recorded an upsurge in theft of not one but both licence plates from vehicles left at unsecured locations.

Plates could be used on vehicles to commit crimes- Police

Road Town Chief Inspector Smyrna Brewley says these licence plates could easily be used on other vehicles to commit crime and evade detection from police and is advising vehicle owners to remove and secure their plates and all other easily removable items in and around the vehicle.

She is also advising persons to make a report to Police as soon as their licence plates are discovered missing.

Police are inviting persons with information on suspects stealing licence plates from vehicles to contact the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339.
