(UNDATED) - Indiana State Police have a new tool to find stolen cars and unlicensed drivers.

Troopers in parts of the state will use a license plate reader to scan the tags of drivers. They tested it out over the summer, and worked out the bugs.

So far, four cruisers across the state are equipped with the reader, including one in the Valley.

Police hope it'll help get revoked or suspended drivers off the road.

"This is not simply a Big Brother tactic by law enforcement to invade in your privacy. This is simply a tool that we're using, new technology that will allow us to locate you, the suspended driver and you, with the improper driver's license."

Each LPR costs $22,000. They were purchased with grant money.
