A fake vintage California license plate led to the arrest of a big rig driver on suspicion of DUI, methamphetamine possession and other crimes in Ventura County. 

A motorcycle officer noticed the plate and pulled the driver over in Moorpark, about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The plate had the yellow lettering and black background of a 1960s legacy plate, but the similarities ended there.

Instead of “CALIFORNIA,” the plate had the word “CALIFAS” above the identification number.

The driver had a warrant out for his arrest, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement Wednesday. Details about the warrant were not immediately available.

The big rig was towed from the scene because it was unsafe to be driven, the sheriff’s department said.
