A 42-year-old Newark man was arrested today after police discovered he reportedly owes $27,000 in unpaid tolls and fees.

According to police, a PAPD Officer spotted a Jeep - driven by Cristhian Coral, 42, of Newark -

pass through a marked "E-ZPass only" without a visible E-ZPass tag around 7 a.m.

The officer stopped and ultimately arrested Coral, after he drove through a George Washington Bridge E-ZPass lane without paying. Further investigation revealed Coral owes $27,000 in unpaid tolls and fees.

He was ultimately charged with theft of service and toll evasion, according to Port Authority police.

Coral was released with a July 21st court date in Bergen County.
