    alert the police and then go to the DMV next time they are open to get a new one. People will steal them and then use your plates to commit a crime or take the sticker to show that the vehicle has been licensed.

    sorry i needed one for the ride home....
    come to rausch and ill give it back....
    mabye it fall off on trail

    Most automotive license plates are stolen for one of the following reasons:
    • A car thief needs an out-of-state plate to get the car he just stole across state lines.
    • To commit traffic violations. If they want to break the laws in states where traffic cameras are installed they can steal a plate and run red lights, or commit other traffic violations with immunity. If this happens be prepared for a visit or call from the local police department.
    • Kids clowning around, I was in Myrtle Beach during spring break and several thought it might have been teens on a scavenger hunt.
    • Gas and go artists. These people steal a plate, then gas up and leave without paying. This way the camera catches YOUR plate, not theirs. Expect a call from the local police department if this happens

    Contact the police and DMV ASAP.

    Only reason to steal a license plate, aside from drunken shenanigans, is to use it in a crime where you don't want your own license plate involved.
