We finally agreed that was premature so we decided to drive around campgrounds in the morning and look for a California license plate number.
I reported the license plate number to him.
And before you ask, the license plate wasn't the same.

Howie obtained a full description of the man and his vehicle and the license plate number.
The license plate had been removed but Dean had a tracer placed on the vehicle identification number, a procedure that would take a couple of days.
He also murdered a deputy sheriff who stopped him because the law knew his license plate from a tip.
