Imagine owing hundreds of dollars in parking tickets for cars you don't even own. That's exactly what happened to Joe Polzin after someone stole his license plate.
Polzin says he replaced the plate back in November and he's got the paperwork to prove it. He paid $5 for a new one.
Today, Polzin is fuming. That's because whoever stole his old plate is racking up parking tickets on at least two different vehicles. The worst part, Polzin says he's getting the bill.
The city of Saginaw issued a total of 6 parking tickets from January to February. Even though Polzin had already reported it stolen months before, the tickets are still being written in his name.
TV5 called the Secretary of State, who says the information would have been updated in their system within 24 hours. We were told to contact the city of Saginaw. No one was in the office to answer the tough questions. Now Polzin is stuck with this growing bill.
Meanwhile, the debt has been turned over to a collection agency. Polzin now owes $200.
