GeneseeNow —  Monday, March 17, 2014

Keep an eye on your car’s license tag.

Police say alot of tags are being stolen. 24 people reported their tags missing in Chili and 30 people had tags ripped off in Irondequoit.

Investigators say it may be an organized group of thieves who will use the tags on stolen cars. Most of the thefts last week were in apartment complex parking lots. Police say you should report a stolen tag immediately. That way the tag number is entered as stolen into the system — and it could lead to a faster arrest of the thieves.
