Fake license plate leads to driver's arrest in California
UPI News Service, 06/12/2019
Authorities in California said a fake license plate that listed the wrong name for the state led to the arrest of a truck driver.
The Moorpark Police Department said a motorcycle officer pulled over a tractor-trailer spotted with an apparently hand-made license plate that listed the state as "Califas," a Spanish slang term for California.
The driver of the truck ended up arrested on drug charges, driving without a license and having an active warrant for his arrest.
"The tractor-trailer he was driving was towed from the scene because it was unsafe to be driven," the department said.
