Stolen lic. plate?

Recommended Posts

The front plate was removed from my truck last night. I made sure I had ins. info handy when I went to work this Am. I can not be at the DOT until Fri. My question is why would someone do this? How long am I going to get drive off issues? How long do I need to worry about this and what would be the best way to protect myself from the punks that are wearing my plate? (on a good note---The tabs expired on the 10th of this month. It must suck to be a stupid thief. He steals a plate with expired tabs.) I can not get there until Friday.

Last year in the St. Cloud area with high gas prices people would steal the plates, put them on their car and do a fill and run at gas stations. It was advised to report any of those thefts to the police.

I had the front plate stolen off my truck last weenend...I did report it to the local police and they took my other plate as well. They advised it is the best practice to report stolen plates in the event they are used in a crime - a CYA move. I think it cost $6.50 for my new plates.

In my opinion, all thieves are stupid.

yep, the most common reason is to use them to do a fill and run at the gas stations.

Had my plates stolen once too, reported it and got new plates. The cops got the guy a few months later. A lot of DWI drivers do this cuz they can't get plates or don't want the W plates on car. Also thieves so the plate can't be traced. It is essential you report it to cover your tail, saves a lot hassle sometimes.

Its probably to late now but invest in the new conservation plate with the fishing boat. They look awesome and goes for a good cause.

I switched out on my Camry when the tabs needed renewal.

Best $40 bucks I spent.

It took three trips to the dmv because of lack of time and long lines but I did get the new plates. I used a different screw head for each bolt. I put all 4 in too. It will take a little longer to pull them this time.

Good thinking on the differant screw heads I think I'll do the same. If is not easy they will just go to the next one.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
