or registration and ownership. When such vehicles are thus identified, processing shall be discontinued and the
Department of Justice shall be notified. New certificates shall not be issued until cleared by the Department of Justice. Notices shall remain in the Department of Motor Vehicles system until a Department

or longer as the department may determine.
