The tags are called confidential tags and are not registered with the state, according to Leland Town Manager David Hollis.
The town has a number of these tags from different states. They are used for undercover operations and can be switched from vehicle to vehicle.
“If that car is stopped, the tag is not on file,” Hollis said. ‘But the agency who owns it would get a call saying someone is inquiring about the tag.”
