That just makes it a little harder to do, but way easier to defend. Dirty cop makes a citizen complaint from a burner phone claiming that a grey Ford whose license plate started with XYZ was seen driving away from a garage with a jimmied lock. Free access for every cop on the force to pull over any grey Ford they see and/or run any plate beginning with XYZ. "We were responding to a complaint." Happens constantly. Lookup "parallel construction".
