(KPLR) – It's a new twist on an old crime.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police department recently warned city drivers about the latest crime trend.  It involves the theft of license plates.

I remember having my license plate tags stolen years ago.  It's certainly not the worst of crimes, but it is an annoying one.

And smaller crimes can lead to bigger ones.  The state created new stickers designed to slow down thefts but now the crooks are stealing the entire plate.

The city recommends theft proof screws sold at area auto dealers.

I wish we could just put a sticker in the window or come up with something that would drive this problem away.

I'm JB, and That's The Way It Oughta Be.
