Police: Driver faked registration using cheese wrapper

ALEXANDRIA, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police are warning drivers to stay up to date on their vehicle registration after fining and towing the car of a woman who tried to fake her vehicle registration using a supermarket cheese wrapper.

Alexandria police commented on Facebook, saying they can’t even file the incident under the “A for effort” category.

WMUR-TV reports the driver’s car was towed and will remain impounded until she registers the vehicle properly. The making of fake registration stickers is also a misdemeanor, punishable with a fine up to $1,200. Police say the driver could be fined up to $2,400, since she forged both her registration and inspection stickers.


Police said the driver was also charged with operating after suspension and driving without proof of financial responsibility.
