licens plate stolen? heres what to do now

i was at a movie the other night and when i came out i saw someone crouching infront of my truck. i quickly found out that he wanted to take my ford licens plate and frame. well that didnt happen but he did have the screws almost out. so i thought for a while and thought about locktight red but that will release with a big wrench. so i decided to use gasget compound on the threads and now its not gona come off to easily.

I used anti-theft bolts from auto-zone, they require a special torx bit to get them off

I used the tamper proof torx or hex also. Check out this website for the tool and the bolts.

Leave him there and go home. Whats he going to do, call the cops? "Uh, yeah I was stealing things from cars and someone beat me up, I think I have his tag number."
