The husband-and-wife owners of Ocean City's popular Manco & Manco pizzerias pleaded not guilty in a tax evasion case Monday.
Charles Bangle, 54, and his wife, Mary, 53, are accused of concealing $981,000 in income from the IRS and using the proceeds for personal expenses.
They were arrested the morning of April 3 by IRS investigators and released that day after appearing in federal court in Camden.
During that hearing, a judge ordered the two to give up their passports, and Charles Bangle to hand over weapons that included 12 handguns, two shotguns, and two rifles.
Approached outside Monday's hearing, they declined to speak with a reporter.
