He exited his vehicle and walked to the pay machine, then returned to his vehicle, where he spoke to a passenger inside the vehicle.

Police say the passenger then walked over to the barrier and forced it up, causing approximately $300 damage to the motor that operates it, while the driver exited the lot.

When asked whether the man had paid for his parking and if the barrier was broken, Kingston police said they didn’t know.
