Thieves have found a new way to make money. They stole the license plate of a Volkswagen Passat in Chisinau and asked 150 euros in return.
Those who committed the crime left the owner a text message with grammar mistakes, requiring a sum of money in exchange of the plate.
The car owner told for realitatea.md that he appealed to the police.
Similar cases were registered several months ago, when Chisinau police arrested a man, aged 34. The man stole plates and then demanded 100 euros.
Last year, two youths, aged 21 and 27, came into the spotlight of police for similar deeds. According to police, having stolen the plates, young people wrote a message on the windshield, indicating the phone number. The car owner was to call them and negotiate the amount of money they wanted in return of license plates.
