YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A trucker wanted for ducking $13,000 in tolls told Port Authority police that he “wanted to save money” when they caught him at the George Washington Bridge earlier today.
Kerron D. Maittia, 38, of the Bronx was after the license plate on his 1996 Kenworth truck registered a hit for officers on the lookout for evaders as it passed through the GWB upper toll plaza stopped at 9 a.m., the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.
Maittia, who’d racked up no fewer than 100 violations,
was using a passenger car EZPass transponder, which shorted the Port Authority by $80 or more each time, Pentangelo said.
“Records show he committed two mismatch violations a day,” he said.
Maittia was charged with theft of services and six counts of toll evasion.
