Chuck Bangle, co owner of Manco & Manco Pizza on the Ocean City Boardwalk at Eighth Street Saturday, May 25, 2013.

The owners of Manco & Manco Pizza will be arraigned in federal court in Camden this afternoon.

Charles "Chuck" Bangle, 54, and his wife, Mary, were arrested at their Somers Point home April 3, on charges that they hid nearly $1 million from the IRS.

In 2011, the two purchased a controlling interest in what was then Mack & Manco, changing the name to Manco & Manco. It has three locations in Ocean City and one in Somers Point.

The couple was indicted on charges that between 2007 and 2011, they skimmed large sums of cash from the business.

Charles Bangle allegedly deposited some of that into the couple's personal bank account at TD Bank in amounts less than $10,000, the threshold that triggers a Currency Transaction Report from financial institutions to the U.S. Department of Treasury.

The Bangles then used the money to pay for personal expenditures.

The couple is accused of concealing about $981,000 in income from the IRS — translating to about $336,273 in unpaid taxes.

The Bangles claimed the deposits into their personal account were from salary earned at the pizza business, according to the indictment.

Each of the indictment's 30 counts carries a maximum potential penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Charles Bangle's attorney, Vincent Sarubbi, said at the time of the arrest that his client cooperated with the government's investigation, and expressed shock at the arrests.

Mary Bangle will be represented by Rocco Cipparone Jr., according to court documents.

Both were released on $100,000 bail each. They are scheduled to appear before Judge Ann Marie Donio at 1:30 p.m. today.
