Two more Mangino forgeries reported

April 12, 2007


Two more forgeries of Kansas University head football coach Mark Mangino's checks were reported to police Tuesday.

According to Lawrence police reports released Wednesday, Mangino's wife, Mary, told officers that checks of $73.32 and $44.55 were forged between March 31 and Tuesday at a Kwik Shop, 845 Miss., and a Dillons, 4701 W. Sixth St.

On Tuesday, police released reports that said three of Mangino's checks were written at Dillons stores in Lawrence on March 31 and April 1.

Police said the checks were taken during a March 30 vehicle burglary when Mangino's vehicle was outside a Lawrence restaurant.

Tyrone Leroy Alexander, 33, Lawrence, and Gary Lynn Smart, 55, Lawrence, were arrested April 1 and charged in connection with several recent burglaries, including the one of Mangino's vehicle.

The men face several charges related to auto burglaries, but no charges have been filed related to the alleged check forgeries.

Nah. Those are real. They were spent on twinkies, little debbies and hot dogs.

Why on earth would anyone be stupid enough to leave checks in their car??

Who would be stupid enough to cash a check from someone named Mangino and not think it odd that he didn't look like the football coach.

These are drug addicts forging checks for cigarettes to sell.

They don't have a clue who Mangino is. Businesses should check ID's for check and credit card purchases, but you are expecting people making $7.00 an hour to care.

These seems strange.

"Hmmmm. . . . Mark Mangino. And, strangely, as I look at him I can see the far wall. I begin to wonder, then, if this is truly Mark Mangino, as if it were the real one my vision would be totally eclipsed, I believe.
