The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says its police have caught a Florida trucker who allegedly tried to evade tolls.

Garfield Ronald Brown, a 46-year-old Miramar resident, was charged with theft of service and tampering with public records after he was stopped around 7:45 a.m. Sunday at the George Washington Bridge toll lanes.

Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says Brown was driving a tractor-trailer without a front license plate and with a bent rear trailer plate in a bid to avoid detection by the EZPass security cameras.

A phone number for Brown could not be found Sunday, and it was not known if he had retained a lawyer.
