Number plates stolen from Ketton, Barrowden and Empingham
People are urged to be on the look-out after a spate of number plate thefts from the area.
There have been a number of vehicle registration plates stolen from Rutland and Lincolnshire in recent weeks.
When registration plates are taken from a vehicle it is likely they will then be used in crime.
Sgt Paul Kear of Rutland Police said: "People need to be on the lookout for thefts of number plates and looking at their vehicle when they get up in the morning.
"Gangs will come up and do five or six jobs in the region, and disappear back down the A47 or A1."
He asked people to consider securing their number plates better with anti-theft bolts.
Police are appealing for information on a number of incidents:
- Luffenham Road, Ketton - Number plates stolen overnight between November 7 and November 8.
- Wakerley Road, Barrowden - Numbers plates stolen overnight between November 13 and 14.
- Stamford Road, Empingham - Number plates stolen between 6pm and 6.30pm on November 6.
It is believed the crimes relate to a number of thefts from vehicles in the area, which Sgt Kear said could mean 'something big is going on'.
