Sticker Shock

Westbrook PD's Sgt. Patrick Lally on thieves using blowtorches to steal inspection stickers off the windshields of cars:
This particular, um, technique is something that's fairly new that I haven't
seen a lot of. We've always had issues with inspection stickers and people
peeling 'em off and trying to stick' em back on.
When you peel off a sticker, it'll show that it's voided because, uh, they're
designed so that you can't just take them from one car to the other. Um, so
that, you know, I think that that's why they're using the torches to try and
back it off slowly so they can get if off.
