Detectives from the Frankston Crime Investigation Unit have arrested two people following a six-month investigation into the alleged manufacturing and sale of cloned Victorian number plates.
A 33-year-old man was arrested on Sargood Street, Hampton earlier this morning.
Police also executed a search warrant at a business premises on Beach Avenue, Mordialloc where they arrested a 37-year-old woman.
“It’s believed the cloned number plates being produced as part of this investigation can be linked to other crimes that have occurred in Melbourne’s south-east such as burglaries, stolen vehicles and handling stolen goods,” Det. Sgt Nick Lamb said.
Police continue to search the premises where they expect to seize a number of items.
