South Yorkshire Police’s Operations Support Unit revealed its clampdown on Twitter, explaining how it had targeted a number of drivers.
“This Ford took us on a trip around Sheffield this morning before being abandoned,” said one. “On false plates and containing various tools for stealing stuff. Recovered for further enquiries.”
“Another one recovered for no insurance, this one over in Doncaster,” the force also tweeted.
"Amongst the subtle modifications on this Mini in Doncaster were front window tints, well below the legal limit. Traffic offence report issued. Remember, companies will sell you what you ask for but you're the one driving. Front windows will be at the limit from manufacture,” another message read.
And another added: “This one didn't have anything added to it over in Sheffield, in fact it had the insurance subtracted. Vehicle recovered and driver reported.”
