Port Authority spokesman All Della Fave says the tractor-trailer was pulled over around 7 a.m. Friday near the George Washington Bridge. The front license plate was missing, the back plate on the truck was covered with tape and the real New Jersey tag on the trailer was hidden by a fake New York one.

Della Fave said the Two Angels, the Scotch Plains, company that owns the truck, owes $53,000 in unpaid tolls. Driver Stephen Taciak could not be reached. He’s charged with theft of services and tampering with public records.

 

Two Angles owner John Thompson said he had no comment.
