A Brooklyn toll collector could face 15 years in prison if convicted of pocketing cash.

Prosecutors say Jonathan Germain walked away with more than $24,000 in toll money during a three-week run at the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel.

The 22-year-old man was freed without bail on Wednesday after his arraignment on charges of larceny and criminal possession.

Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson said the suspect took money from deposit bags and replaced it with counterfeit bills.

He also said Germain was caught on camera swiping more than $3,000 from the tolls.
