The owners of a popular Jersey shore pizza restaurant chain who evaded taxes and lied to the IRS have been sentenced.
Manco & Manco Pizza owner Charles Bangle was sentenced in federal court in Camden on Friday to 15 months in prison. His wife, Mary Bangle, was sentenced to three years of probation.
Charles Bangle pleaded guilty in July 2015 to evading taxes on his 2011 tax returns and structuring financial transactions to avoid reporting requirements. Mary Bangle pleaded guilty to knowingly making materially false statements to the IRS.
Manco & Manco Pizza is located in Ocean City and has three stores on the boardwalk and one in Somers Point.
The Bangles were employees of Mack & Manco Pizza until they bought it in 2011. They later changed the name.
Charles Bangle acknowledged avoiding $92,000 in taxes.
