Fake-vintage-license-plate with the aid of a slang term for California, attracted the attention of a motorcycle officer, and this has led to the arrest of a truck driver earlier this week, officials said.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, said on Monday that the fake license plate that read “Califas” in the place of California and asked for an officer to stop a tractor-trailer in Moorpark.

The picture appeared to have a black background with yellow lettering, very similar to the California Legacy Plate — but the name is wrong.

Senior Deputy David said to Anaya, in a news release, during the investigation, the driver appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

The driver, who was not identified, was arrested for driving under the influence, possession of methamphetamine, being an unlicensed driver and having an active warrant for his arrest, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office said the arrest was one of many stops for the safety involving commercial vehicles and those travelling by Moorpark, as the city is on a 243-commercial vehicles pass by every hour or so.

Last year, deputies issued, 983, traffic and parking citations for the commercial truck violations and arrested several drivers for a variety of offenses, including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, possession of fake driver’s licences or registrations, and, as a result of the then outstanding warrants.
