had some bonehead steal the liscense plates off our jimmy...........they kicked out the front plastic bumper to steal the front......and took out the screws to the ones in back. its my guess they did it because they didn't have the 155 bucks to buy a new sticker...and you cant scrape the off. I had to buy new plates,,,Illinois don't replace for free. I did replace them......and I used angle iron on the front to hold the front plate were they busted out the plastic.......and the back has been bolted and epoxied...................they might have issues trying it again.

Happened to me years ago when I lived in Milwaukee. Stole the plates the day after I put the sticker on. I thought about rigging a stun gun up to the plate for the next time. I hate thieves.

doing the same here, usually it is just the front plate, and few people check to see if they are on
lots of people drive with no front plate- but it is needed here
Ours are replaced by the insurance provider
Photo radar starts sending the notices and it is usually on a match to the make and model as your stolen plate- so you have a pass if you had reported it stolen

Drug trafficers that are driving across Canada flip the plates every few days. The one Mule they stopped lately had 25 different plates in the trunk

You're way better off than the guy in Milford, Ct., who got 300 stitches after a catalytic converter thief, took a cutoff grinder wheel to his face.

Hope they get stopped, here it shows up when the police run the plate and find it has not had the stickers paid for, my little brother did something similar but he went to a junkyard and took one off a junker, here in MN at least it’s charged as a tax violation as well as a traffic violation, the tax violation can get you up to 10 years, the traffic only a fine

Years and years ago I got a notice to appear in court for unpaid parking tickets. My front license plate (NJ issues front and back plates) had been missing for months and I just figured it fell off somewhere.

The description of the car on the tickets was the same as mine. White Ford Taurus. I reported the plate stolen at the police dept. and was going to take that police report with me on my court date hoping the judge would believe it wasn't me.

As I was driving away from the police dept, a friend in the passenger seat said "There's your license plate." I pulled into a parking lot and there was a White Ford Taurus with my plate on the back and a MD plate on the front. Turned around and headed back to the PD. The thief's car was towed and the judge let me off.

Got rear ended by a pretty girl once. She offered to pay for damages. Someone reported the accident and police responded. I was invited to sit in the police car while the officer called his office. The girl had no license, no insurance, no clear auto title. And the tags were stolen. She had a long list of drug charges. Her car was impounded and she made a call for someone to pick her up. She had a toddler child with her. A friend arrived in a compact truck. The officer installed the car seat on the passenger side and made the girl ride home in the pickup bed.

The officer asked me if I was still interested in her offer to pay me without being charged. When she went to court, the judge ordered her to pay my insurance deductible. Took a year to get that back. So, she stuck the cost to my insurance carrier.

Around here, the front plates get stolen by the illegals. They buy a junker for a few hundred bucks, install your license plate and they're good to go!

They have an accident and everyone bails out and runs away, leaves the car , and repeats the process.

they were reported as soon as the discovery was made.......I don't know if the thieves will ever get caught though ..........usually the cops only run plates randomly or if the vehicle is acting suspicious or theres a traffic violation. thousands of vehicles on the road at any given time and trying to intentionnely spot a set of stolen plates can be quite a task. for all I know...they could be in texas now.

A few years ago , around here , I understood that the police could just drive by your car or whatever , take a picture of your plate and it ran automaticly .
They could turn it on and just drive and it would run plates as they rode around .
I never took it as being so , but you never know any more .
That brings to mind the post about the good or bad shoot on here a little while ago .

The cops didn't believe us at first. We reported my tag stolen and 10 minutes later show up saying we found the car (in a city of 50,000 people). Even after we had them follow us to the car with the stolen tags they were trying to figure out what we had done wrong.

El-Annoyans like to buy 2 identical vehicles and split a pair of plates between them and live in Mo where they won't have to renew plates, get inspections, pay property tax and get cheaper gas and cigarettes.
