PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WJAR) - Cardboard and magic markers do not tend to fool police officers.

Police in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, posted a photo on Facebook of a car that had a fake license plate made with cardboard from a pizza box and magic markers.

"Charges for this creative operator include operating an uninsured and unregistered vehicle and attaching 'fake home made' plates," police said in the post.
