BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Transportation Authority Police have arrested a man they say had nearly 4,000 packs on untaxed cigarettes in his car when it was stopped on Interstate 95 in Baltimore County.

The department said in a news release that on Wednesday, an officer stopped a car driven by 68-year-old Rosendo Perez-Torres of Elizabeth, New Jersey, because the rear license plate was obscured.

Authorities found the cigarettes in the car’s trunk. Officials say Perez-Torres was traveling from North Carolina to New Jersey.

Perez-Torres was charged with transporting cigarettes within Maryland without the tobacco tax being paid.
