Queens cab driver charged evading $28K in tolls: DA

By Alex Robinson

A Long Island City cabdriver has been charged with stealing more than $28,000 in toll payments from the MTA, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

Rodolfo Sanchez, 69, allegedly crossed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge more than 3,000 times since 2012 without paying by “piggybacking” behind other cars, Brown said.

An invalid E-Z Pass tag Sanchez was using led investigators to the cabdriver, a criminal complaint filed by the DA said.

If convicted, Sanchez could face up to seven years in prison.
