TICKET TO RIDE: Police in Madison, Wisc., arrested Anthony R. Gallagher, 23, alleging he used a computer to make fake parking citations, which he then posted on cars. Victims, they say, paid him hundreds of dollars in $40 “fines” by mailing checks to the post office box address shown on the bogus tickets. Police tracked the fakes to Gallagher because he had rented the PO box, and because the serial number on the fake citation matched the number on a real one — which had recently been issued to Gallagher for illegal parking.
