(Newser) – A New Jersey man's alleged attempt to avoid adding to his $13,000 debt in unpaid tolls and fines didn't quite work out as planned Tuesday. Port Authority agents pulled over Oscar Sanchez near the Holland Tunnel because his black Mercedes-Benz didn't have a front license plate, a rep tells the AP. He also didn't have an E-ZPass device. Authorities say they soon found Sanchez was driving with an expired New Jersey license and was wanted for $2,771 in unpaid tolls and $10,200 in penalties, per the New York Post. He had allegedly racked up some 200 instances of missed EZ Pass toll payments. He faces various charges, including theft of service, and had his car impounded.
