CAR THEFTS ON THE INCREASE Alarm in Melbourne MELBOURNE, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

CAR THEFTS ON THE INCREASE Alarm in Melbourne MELBOURNE, Wednesday. The unlawful conversion of motor cars 1s giving cause for grave con- cern In Melbourne. The average of stolen cars for the past 6 months Is es- timated at five a week. The Auto- mobile Club says that unless (better supervision is exercised this class'of of- fence will get out of hand. Arrests are too few to serve as a déterrant, and offenders caught are usually dealt with too leniently. At present, most of the cars stolen are recovered, but as of- fences Increase, no doubt the thlevesV ingenuity will prevent the tracing of the cars. Thieves can so disguise a machine that its owner will not re- cognise it.
