Police not fooled by trucker’s fake license plate


California police say that a semi truck driver’s homemade license plate led them to uncover a number of other major violations.

In a news release issued on Monday, June 10, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office briefly described one officer’s encounter with a trucker whose big rig was sporting a suspicious license plate:

“Recently, a motorcycle officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a tractor-trailer for a false license plate (see attached photo). During the investigation, the driver appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.

The driver was arrested for driving under the influence, possession of methamphetamine, being an unlicensed driver, 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.”

In an image shared by police, you can see that the license plate reads “Califas” instead of California and that the lettering does not appear to be uniform.
