Then later that night Sheriff’s Deputies found the plates when Sheriff’s deputies have recovered a stolen car, and also made two arrests.  Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal says around 10:30 last night (Thursday), detectives located a car matching a description of a stolen vehicle at the Riebes Automotive parking lot in Grass Valley. It was a passenger vehicle with commercial plates, and a check showed that both the car and the plates were stolen. Royal says a surveillance was set up, and two guys did come back to the car.
