The tricks used by these car criminals are extensive and are often challenging to crack even by police, especially when the vehicle’s details have been changed.
One such incident has been caught on camera showing a suspected crook overseeing a change of a vehicle’s number plates.
The photo which has been shared online shows a Toyota fielder with number plates KBH 187P. Atop the vehicle, another plate reading KBH 578L lies next to a screwdriver.
We have not been able to independently verify where the photo was taken or by whom.
