A California woman was arrested after she was spotted with a handwritten fake license plate on the back of a suspected stolen car.

The arrest happened on Friday morning in the city of Benicia, which is located about 30 miles north of San Francisco.

The suspect, 38-year-old Angel Rachiene Bolton, wrote the license plate numbers with a thick black marker on what police believed to be printer paper and then taped it to the back of a silver Kia Rio LX, which was reportedly stolen out of Alameda, according to the Benica Police Department.

“We know we are not superheroes, but just FYI this is NOT a way to get one over on us,” the Benica Police Department wrote on Facebook reportedly stolen out of Alameda.

To make matters even worse, police said the counterfeit plate’s tags were expired, reading “JAN 2023” where a real registration sticker should be.

“Pro tip: At least make the ‘registration’ current,” the Benicia Police joked in the Facebook post.
