You used to be able to go into a post shop and find out the name and address of who owns any given number plate for an admin fee of something like $2. But I think they stopped that, as it was being used more for nefarious purposes than legitimate ones…?
Blackmore is a thug. I had the misfortune of dealing with him while working in bars in the late 90s. He was always surrounded by a bunch of gang members who he was allegedly bankrolling. This mean he could do what he wanted with the (not always ) unspoken threat of violence always behind him.
Having had him prepared to hit punch me for the dreaded crime of not letting his gang member mate bring his 15 yr old girlfriend into the bar is a highlight of dealings with him.
