Stolen lic. plate?

10 posts in this topic

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.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
