  • MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Prosecutors say college student Anthony Gallagher had an ingenious way of making some extra money -- phony parking tickets. According to authorities, Gallagher made copies of a real parking ticket and placed them on cars near his Madison, Wisconsin, frat house. He allegedly established a post office box to receive the payments. Police say they traced the scheme to Gallagher because the citation number on the phony tickets was the same as one issued to him in February of last year. According to prosecutors, Gallagher deposited hundreds of dollars from the phony parking tickets in a bank account.
