If police are correct, Oscar Sanchez, of Jersey City, has taken hubris to a new level. Sanchez’ black Mercedes Benz was seized after he was pulled over for a missing front license plate. That turned out to the least of the problems.
It turns out that Sanchez has been driving through the EZ Pass tolls without any concern for paying. He racked up $12,000 in unpaid tolls. Over 200 missed toll payments. He was also found to be driving on an expired driver’s license.
He allegedly stored his front plate in his trunk to avoid charges for going into the EZ lane in the Holland Tunnel.
He now faces charges including theft of service, operating a vehicle on a suspended license and not having a front license plate.
