Free car crime prevention ASHFIELD drivers can have anti-theft screws fitted to their car number plates free of charge. Local police and SES staff will be fitting the screws at Bunnings Warehouse on Frederick St, Ashfield, from 9am on July 24 and 25 and August 7 to 9. The operation is a region- wide initiative to reduce the number of stolen licence plates, and rising fraud and petrol theft offences. ''A marquee will be set up at Bunnings and we hope to get the local community involved to get as many cars fitted as possible,'' Ashfield commander Superintendent Barry Gallagher said. Supt Gallagher said the screws had proved success- ful in reducing number plate theft. ''We anticipate drivers who can't attend the fitting stations on the allotted days will be able to attend their local police station follow- ing the operation and have officers insert the screws, for free. ''People should make the effort to replace the screws on their vehicles. ''They're free, easy to fit and difficult for thieves to remove.
