License Plate Still There?

I received the following in an email today. Makes sense to me, with gas over $4.00/gallon and many gas tanks holding 25+ gallons.

A woman said her son found his license plate missing, so he called the police to file a report. They told him people are stealing license plates and then stealing gas.

Given the rise in gas prices, people have taken to stealing license plates, putting them on their cars, then pumping 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 be sure you still have your plates. If you should find one missing, file a police report immediately! Keep an eye on your license plates! Make sure you always know they are there!

When the license plate is reported as the "drive-off vehicle", it's YOU they contact! Be aware of your license plates; most of us never look to see if the plates are there or not.
