Beware: Inspection Stickers are Being Stolen


Car owners beware we are being told that more than a few cars were broken into last Sunday night with the intent  to steal the inspection stickers and anything loose. This mainly happened in the new section.

    Does GerritsenBeach.net have anymore info in this? Seems like we have to stay up all hours of the night just to keep an eye on our property.

    someone’s too cheap to pay $37 for the inspection fee? :)

    Why keep fishing for info? You are getting a head’s up….keep your car doors locked, keep everything including EZpass out of view, and keep attending Mass on Sunday! Nuff said.

    Is the church parking lot where you’re planning on striking next?

  • It is what it is!

    It seems that The BEACH RATS found a new Hobby! Outstanding!!

    Just had my ezpass stolen out of my car. My fault I never lock my car. The idiots can’t even use it without be caught. Cost me $23 to report stolen. Btw live in the beach 30 years and never had anything stolen. This isn’t the same neighborhood anymore. So sad

    Since an inspection sticker is a state issued document, it is a felony to steal one. Lets see how many laws are being broken here.

    1-Theft of state documentation.
    2-Breaking and entering.
    3-Trespassing.
    4-Conspiracy to use or sell stolen state documentation.
    5-Falsifying documentation, for you own car or someone elses.
    6-Theft to the state of New York, whether for your own use, or selling for a profit is a federal offense.
    7-Standing by as a lookout while your friend steals the sticker is conspiracy to the theft of the state of New york.
    8-Restitution judgement. This is for any fines incurred because the inspection sticker was stolen. Remember, just because someone recieved a ticket for $100.00 at nine oclock at night doesent mean other traffic officers won’t come by later and issue more tickets.

    I’m sure a good prosecuting attorney would want to have all these charges brought up. But i’m almost positive whoever is behind this will get a slap on the wrist. If I missed anything, please let me know.

    Nice to know how to take a sticker off..It reminds me when people put diamondback rattle snakes in their cars to prevent car radios being stolen….

    Well if NYS didn’t make it so hard to get a car inspected people wouldn’t have to steal a sticker. There is no reason a car needs to be put on a computer…that has nothing to do with safety….!!

    like seriously…the whole inspection thing has become such a scam…i have friends who take their car in and then they are told they have to pay like 1200+ to pass inspection…ridiculous…NYS is plain silly with all these excessive DMV laws and regulations…but I’m sure the repair shops love it -_^

  • if you dont mind cracking the windshield try the heat, dont you think the 95 degree temperature sometimes 100 they would just be falling on peoples dash ? soaking it with window cleaner, safe and clean drops it off within the hour just keep wetting it
