Three vehicles were seized as the owners had allegedly committed a number of offences last week. Lowestoft Police seized all three vehicles from a Lowestoft address after it was fun that they were not insured. “#Seized today. All vehicles seized on Thurston Road #Lowestoft for No Insurance. Further offences are being investigated by #nrt5 #1330,” the Facebook post read.
It has also been alleged that the vehicles were displaying false number plates, according to a report by Eastern Daily Press.
Displaying false number plates is a type of fraud which is often dubbed as ‘car cloning.’
Cloning occurs when the number plates of one car have been placed on a written-off or stolen vehicle to conceal its identity.
A spokesperson from Suffolk Constabulary, said: “Police received information of three vehicles parked in Thurston Road displaying alleged false number plates, with one suspected of being driven without insurance.
“Officers attended and located the driver of the vehicle who was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.
“He has since been released from custody and will face no further action.
“Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances around the false number plates,” they said.
The vehicles seized were a BMW Z3 convertible a motorcycle and a moped.
