Port Authority police say a New Jersey motorcyclist was caught trying to avoid paying a toll on the Jersey City side of the Holland Tunnel.

Police say 38-year-old Michael Mongalieri of South Amboy drove through an E-ZPass lane early Wednesday with a license plate obscured by strips of electrical tape.

The Port Authority needs a clear picture of plates so it can bill people who go through E-ZPass lanes without transponders.

Mongalieri was charged with theft of service and tampering with a public record.

Police say a tunnel manager noticed the taped-over plate and alerted nearby detectives in an unmarked vehicle.
