Yeah that use to happen all the time in Texas, so they made a change to the registration tags for the plates. The tags went on the lower left hand corner of the windshield so people would stop stealing them! I hated that they were there and hope I don't have to go through this again!!!!

aren't you supposed to report to the police/dmv when your plate/s are stolen/lost/missing?

Aren't the tabs made so that you can't peel them off, IIRC they just come apart if you try, so they'll prolly just throw your plate on for a while to be legal, that is until they get pulled over. Sorry that happened.

Ya just got back from the DMV and I had to get all new plates and tabs, but luckly the tabs were free. All I had to pay for was the plates, it was like $14. But its crap in the first place that this had to happen, but oh well

Razor blade takes effort! Use and iron to steam it off under a towel!

WHen I would get my tags, I would put it on the license plate and then run a razor across it so when removal was attempted, it became a jig-saw puzzle!!!!!
