NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - An Adams County official is hoping to follow the lead of Hinds County and crack down on illegal auto tags.

Board of Supervisors President Mike Lazarus tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1TXnVwQ) he wants Adams County to discuss the possibility of hiring a tag investigator to catch residents operating with illegal auto tags, including those with tags from another county or out-of-state.

Lazarus said he does not know if illegal auto tags are as pervasive in Adams County as in Hinds.

Lazarus said he has fielded complaints from residents about illegal tags.

If the county is able to increase its revenue from auto tags by curbing illegal tags, Lazarus said it could be beneficial for all residents.
