A Texas man is accused of using a license plate flipper that helped him avoid more than $5,400 in tolls, KTRK reported.
Preston Cody Talbot, 27, of Spring, was charged with misdemeanor unlawful use of a criminal instrument, the Houston Chronicle reported.
According to police, Talbot was stopped Thursday on the Sam Houston Tollway and was found with a license flipper, a plate cover designed to temporarily cover a license plate with a black sheet, according to the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office.
Talbot was released after posting a $100 bond, the newspaper reported.
