Motorcyclist accused of beating toll with retractable plate
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Police say a man on a motorcycle used a retractable license plate to try to prevent paying a toll at the Holland Tunnel.
A Port Authority police officer on Sunday saw the license plate was concealed as the motorcycle entered an E-ZPass lane. The officer then saw the man use a toggle switch to return the license plate to its proper position.
Authorities charged 51-year-old Henry Pogue of Roselle with theft of service and possession of drug paraphernalia. He’s due to make an appearance in Municipal Court on July 26.
It’s not known if Pogue has a lawyer and a telephone number listed in his name was no longer in service.
