DANVILLE – Two suspects were placed in custody after license plate cameras notified officers of a stolen vehicle traveling through town.
At approximately 1:00 pm Monday afternoon, newly installed license plate cameras alerted police to a stolen Nissan Sentra traveling near an intersection in Danville.
