ANPR manager Inspector Andy Piper: "This operation was an excellent example of how ANPR can help us to specifically target offenders. These operations detect and deter those using the roads to commit crimes like burglary, as well as those putting law-abiding road users at risk by driving with defective vehicles or without insurance."
He added: "We will be increasing our ANPR activity across the county in the coming months, and results like these should send out a clear message that roads in Herts are a no-go area for criminals.
