Contributed Notice:

A woman said her son found his license plate missing so he called the police to file a report.  They told him people were stealing the plates to get free gas.  Given the rise in gas prices, people have taken to stealing license plates, putting them on their car, then getting gas and running.  The gas station will have “your” license plate number and you could be in trouble for “pump and run.”  Check your car periodically to make sure you still have your license plate.  If you should find it missing, file a report immediately!!! Make sure you always know it’s there!  When the license plate is reported as the “drive off vehicle,” it’s YOU they contact!  Be aware!!!  Be aware of your license plates, most us never look to see if the plates are there or not.  If you know anyone else who drives please send this to them.
