Thief steals Billings resident vehicle registration

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Many of us have had things stolen from us at some point in our lives, but one Billings resident had something unusual stolen.

Evan Cotta walked outside this morning to find a small rectangular area cut out of his license plate.

The area cut out was where the registration would have been.     

Cotta said the thief must have used tin snips, and the tires of his car also were flat.

Cotta said the incident took place around 8th Street West and Avenue E.

Lt. Neil Lawrence with Billings PD said this is strange because usually either just the sticker or the whole plate will be stolen. But the incident is a good reminder to check your own car every once in a while.

    If you are buying a Powerball ticket... Make sure you check your numbers carefully. Even if you don't win the big pot of money you could still come away with a nice sum of cash.

    It's understandable that many students have a few butterflies on their first few days of school. Other students go through something worse, full on anxiety.
