Stolen License Plates

Unfortunately, theft sometimes occurs within our hobby. This page is designed as a service to collectors to list license plates which were known or suspected to have been stolen at ALPCA sanctioned events.

If you see one of the plates listed here on eBay, for sale at a market, in a private collection, or anywhere else, the plate is STOLEN PROPERTY, and the rightful owner should be contacted in all cases to arrange for the safe return of the plate in question.

This page is not intended to track down current tags stolen from a vehicle; victims of this type of theft should contact their local police station or DMV office.

Information about these plates should be directed to the rightful owner.
