NEW YORK, June 21 (UPI) -- New York police said a woman was arrested after stealing a license plate off a patrol car and shoving it down her pants.

Police said Beryl Duncan, 53, took the plate from the marked 2009 Chevrolet Impala while it was parked near Prospect Park on a call about a disturbance about 1 a.m. Monday, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

A witness described seeing Duncan shove the plate down her pants and police said she denied stealing the plate when confronted by an officer.

Police said the woman told the officer the plate had fallen off the vehicle and she was holding it until she could return it to an officer.

Duncan was arrested and charged with criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny.
