Police allege an offender went on an overnight number-plate stealing spree across Shepparton, Kialla and Stanhope at the weekend.

Shepparton police Criminal Investigation Unit Detective Senior Constable Tom Young said 15 pairs of personalised number plates were stolen from vehicles between Friday and Saturday morning.

‘‘It appears the offender has driven around to select plates to steal from motor vehicles,’’ Det Sen Const Young said.

‘‘Some were parked on the street and some were in driveways.’’

Det Sen Const Young said the plates were taken from a range of cars.

‘‘It doesn’t appear to be targeted, it seems random. It’s very bizarre,’’ he said.

Det Sen Const Young said the incidents were a timely reminder for people to fix number-plates to their cars with one-way anti-theft screws.

Anyone with information is urged to phone Shepparton police on 5820 5777.
