Local "Car Ringing" Operation Busted

Local "Car Ringing" Operation Busted

This week the Counties Manukau Road Crime Unit carried out two warrants on a local mechanic’s premises. Intelligence had been gathered relating to the business in question and it has recently become clear that it was an illegal car ringing operating. As a result 12 stolen cars have been recovered and a number of people arrested and charged with receiving and theft offences.

“We would like to take this opportunity to remind people to make sure you’re taking your car to legitimate places of business” says Inspector Neil Fisher. “These illegal operators have been replacing the engines of legitimate customers with stolen ones as well as changing number plates and VIN numbers”.

The recent warrants have been part of an ongoing operation and Police would like to reassure the public that they are actively pursuing illegal operators within the community.
