Texas man caught with license plate flipper owes $5,400 in tolls, police say
HOUSTON – Preston Cody Talbot was arrested Thursday for failing to pay a toll after using a license plate flipper to avoid tollway cameras, according to KPRC.
An investigation revealed $5,473.07 in unpaid tolls, police said.
Use of a license plate flipper is considered a misdemeanor in Texas with a fine of no more than $200.
Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman told KPRC that Talbot was caught after deputies noticed a pattern and were able to anticipate what time of day he came through the tolls.
Talbot was released from Harris County Jail after posting $100 bond.
