A Placerville Website operator was arrested on Feb. 6 on suspicion of using a false license plate and false registration.

At 10 a.m., while heading southbound on Placerville drive, a sheriff’s deputy noticed that a registration sticker was not attached correctly to the suspect’s license plate, said Sgt. Phil Chovanec of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department. The suspect was identified as Christopher Alarcon, 43, of Placerville.

The driver reportedly acted suspiciously while the deputy was following.

After running the suspect’s license plate, it was found the plates had expired in 2009 and belonged to a different vehicle.

Alarcon was placed under arrest on suspicion of a false license plate and false vehicle registration. His car was towed.
