A Florida man is facing multiple charges for allegedly using a remote-controlled device on his minivan that could cover his license plate with a press of a button.
Robert Craig Davis, 70, of Key Largo, was caught after being spotted using the shield last Saturday by off-duty Florida Highway Patrol trooper Lt. Alejandro Camacho while he was driving on Florida’s Turnpike. Police believe Davis was using the device to evade paying toll fees.
Troopers said they found the remote control used to lower and raise the black covering inside the suspect’s vehicle. In the glove box, they found a SunPass transponder—used in vehicles to automatically pay Florida toll charges—that was kept inside a signal-blocking bag.
They’ve been looking for him for awhile.
