Police say officers on patrol conducted a motor vehicle stop at approximately 1 a.m. today where the plates came back stolen from a location earlier in the week in Belleville.
Police say during the stop, officers arrested Mr. Anthony Carbley, 19, from Belleville and Mr. Keith Mcnie, 18, from Nutley.
