FORT LEE - Authorities say they've nabbed two New Jersey residents who have racked up about $30,000 in unpaid tolls combined.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says officers pulled over Englewood resident John Reynolds on Wednesday morning after seeing him pass through the E-ZPass lane of the George Washington Bridge while pretending his cellphone was a transponder.

Authorities say the car had about 300 toll violations, totaling about $19,000.

The next morning, officers stopped North Plainfield resident Lucy Sanchez on the bridge after police say she passed through without paying a toll.

Police say Sanchez didn't have a driver's license and had nearly 150 toll violations, totaling about $9,000.

Both are charged with theft of service and evading tolls.

It's not known if they have lawyers.
