NORTH HUDSON — State Police didn't have to work too hard to figure out who stole license plates from a vehicle in North Hudson earlier this month.
The alleged thief left a note on the victim's car informing her she had taken the plates, authorities said.
The theft and note led to the arrest of Karen M. Caza, 38, of North Hudson, on a misdemeanor charge of petit larceny, according to State Police.
Caza took the plates because her vehicle's registration had been suspended because of an insurance lapse, police said in a news release.
Troopers also ticketed her for operating an unregistered vehicle and operating a motor vehicle with a registration that is suspended. She was arraigned and released on her own recognizance pending prosecution in North Hudson Town Court
