Licence plate gone! WTF

So I went riding today. Stoped to go into a store and came back out and I notice my licence plate is gone WTF. I know it didn't fall off because my Fricking braket is bent like someone tried to take the whole thing and just got my licence plate off. I don't know if it happened while I was in the store or what.

I had the license plate stolen off of my car several years ago and called the police to report it and they wouldn't even take a report. I told them I was concerned that whoever stole it would use it for criminal activity and they just said that they don't take reports about stolen license plates. Thanks a lot! Just another reason that the police fall into the mostly useless category.

Well I just got my new plate and walked down the hall to the sheriff's office and told them I needed to report my plate stolen. The sheriff told me don't worry about it. WTF...
Ohh yeah it cost me all of $6.30 for a new plate.

I would imagine the old one is no longer registered to you.

No need to report to the police or sheriff's dept. It is logged as lost at the tax office when you applied for a new one.

I don't think anyone stole your plate but maybe the way it is hanged above your tires and when you are in a dip, the rear tire broke it loose.

I thought about that but there’s no way my suspension compressed that much.

I this happen about 2 months ago, the police wouldn't take the report over the phone. I had to go there and file a report. Apparently if someone does something wrong (with your stolen plate) and you haven't reported it, you can get in heaps of trouble yourself.

It only cost like $9 to get a new plate... but it was a pain having to get file the report and junk.

If it happens again, you will know. If you are having a passenger, it could be the cause.
