JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey woman has been arrested for allegedly skipping tolls, something authorities say she’s done more than 500 times.

The Jersey Journal reports (https://bit.ly/29Ru3pn ) police attempted to stop 55-year-old Denise Simien near the Holland Tunnel after learning she owed more than $16,000 in unpaid tolls and fees. Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Joe Pentangelo says the Verona woman didn’t stop and passed through the toll plaza again without paying before she was stopped on the other side of the plaza.

Simien was charged Wednesday with theft of services and obstruction of justice.

She’s one of several people who’ve recently been charged with evading the Holland Tunnel’s $15 toll.

It’s unclear if she has an attorney who can comment on the charges.
