RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Two teenagers were arrested this week in Ramapo after they were caught in a car with stolen license plates, police said.

The unidentified boys, 17 and 19 years old respectively, were stopped early Monday, Feb. 1, on College Road by a Ramapo officer who had received a hit for a stolen vehicle on his unit’s license-plate reader, police said.

It turned out, police said, that the car was not stolen, but the license plates belonged to another car that had been taken in Monsey about two weeks ago.

The 19-year-old Spring Valley resident, the owner of the car he was a passenger in, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of stolen property and on an unrelated village of Airmont warrant, police said.

The 17-year-old driver, also of Spring Valley, was charged with vehicle and traffic violations including: unlicensed operator, improper plates, unregistered vehicle, uninspected vehicle, and uninsured vehicle, police said.

The 19-year-old was arraigned and sent to Rockland County Jail to await an appearance in court, police said.
