Most states registration do not have the color attached. And procedure may vary differently in different places, but as a standard procedure we don't run the plate prior to stopping the car. The plate is given when the stop is called to dispatch and they run the plate, but it is very likely that I will already be talking to the driver by the time the plate is actually ran by the dispatcher, and if there was a stolen plate which had not yet been reported it would not likely raise any flags with the dispatcher that she needs to give me back the information.
