Friday Evening, May 24, 1957. Load of Fish Proves Costly In Truck Check Ohio Driver Pays $627.50; May Have to Pay Additional $530 and Store Part of Load Eugene Conant, Akron, 0., en- route from the East coast to Los Angeles, Calif., with 40,000 pounds of fisb, had no idea how much trouble he was getting into when he drove onto the state police scales in a truck weight check conducted Friday morning at the •west edge of Logansport. He had forgotten to figure the weight of the ice in his load and his truck was 5,900 pounds over the legal weight as a result. He also was charged with being 5,300 pounds overweight on his tandem axles. ' His fines of $5 and costs and civil penalty of 10 cents a pound on the 5,900 pounds gross overweight came to a total of $627.50. Because there was some question under the law whether it was pro per for him to be assessed another civil penalty of $530 for the overload on the tandem axles, the justice of the peace turned the matter over to Prosecutor George Babcock, who is charged with the responsibility of collecting unpaid civil penalities. The extra civil penalty would bring the total assessment to $1,157.50 Slate Trooper Larry Wagenk- nechi, who signed the affidavits against Conant, said the driver alto would have to unload the excess 5,900 pounds before he could proceed on his trip. Consequently, he was looking for a place to store that much fish. Two other truck drivers, who were arrested in the weight check, arc to appear in court later. They are Roy Rice, 40B'A Fourth street, charged with being over the registered weight, and C. Alien Miller, Ml Indiana, Rochester, also charged with being over the registered weight.
