Florida man accused of using remote control device to cover up license plate while passing through tolls

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As Kentuckiana gets used to paying tolls, we can all learn something from one Florida man: what not to do.

A Florida Highway Patrol Trooper was driving behind Joshua Concepcion-West when a mechanical device covered his license plate while he was going through the tolls.

The plate then reappeared after going through the tolls.

Troopers say it was controlled by a remote control, and they'd never seen anything like it.

"So for a $1.25 toll, he now has a felony charge," said the trooper. "And we want to let people know it's not worth it. Pay the toll or don't use the road."

Concepcion-West was arrested and charged with petty theft and cheating.
