Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
Plates scheme
Published:  31 August, 2011

Thieves who fill up and drive off from service stations using stolen number plates are the target of a new scheme launched in Slough, Berkshire.

Between January and August this year, 152 vehicles in the area had their number plates stolen, and 55% of these plates were then used to commit bilkings at fuel stations. Thames Valley Police has now joined forces with local service stations as well as the British Oil Security Syndicate (BOSS).

Crime prevention tips are being given out as well as tamper-proof screws.
