A North Carolina man used a counterfeit insurance card Tuesday to pick up a release for his impounded truck at the , police said today.
Larry L. Frank, 35, of the 6700 block of Pence Road in Charlotte, had been cited for numerous motor vehicle violations in May, such as having an unregistered vehicle and ficticious tags.
When a patrol officer checked Frank's registration—as Frank was parked in a fire zone—the violations were discovered. He also had two outstanding traffic warrants from the towns of Secaucus, Hudson County and Hillside, Union County.
Frank was arrested, issued several traffic violations and posted bail. Today, when he went to get a release for his truck—which had nearly $2,500 worth of towing and storage on it—Franks used a counterfeit insurance card and was arrested.
A check showed he still had the same outstanding warrants as he failed to appear in court after posting bail.
Frank was charged with presenting a counterfeit insurance card, a fourth degree crime. He posted $2,500 cash bail and also posted $790 cash bail on the warrants.
