OTTAWA – The new license plate reader cameras in the city of Ottawa have already helped tracked down vehicles that were reported stolen. The Ottawa Police Department say that since they began using them on Saturday, two different investigations began and led to individuals being taken into custody. One was an allegedly stolen vehicle from the state of Georgia. The Automated License Plate Reading cameras were also used to locate a person who was wanted on a number of outstanding Wisconsin warrants.
