Deputies with Constable Ted Heap's Office arrested a woman wanted for selling fraudulent temporary license plate tags for profit on March 30, 2023. As a part of the HCTRA’s ongoing “Tag You’re It” fictitious temporary tag enforcement campaign, Precinct 5 deputies identified Tina Marie Jimenez, 37, as the prime suspect in the long-running scam which produced and sold fictitious temporary tags out of her vehicle titling, insurance, and tax service business.
Jimenez was charged and arrested for unauthorized reproduction & sale of a temporary tag and money laundering. Both charges are felonies. Investigators believe the offenses involve at least $35,000 in alleged laundered funds and toll violations.
At the time of her arrest, Jimenez was on probation on felony charges of a third drunk driving conviction over a ten-year period.
Yesterday’s arrest was the culmination of an 18-month investigation, a joint effort of the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office's Toll Road Division, The Harris County District Attorney’s Office, and the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. #constabletedheap #yourconstable
