Skeeter Manos reported to Pierce County Jail Wednesday.
The former Lakewood police officer surrendered to face charges of second-degree identity theft and forgery for allegedly stealing a Tacoma accountant’s identity to cover up his thefts from the families of four slain comrades.
Manos, 35, made bail Monday after the court allowed him to pay $10,000 in cash instead of paying the same fee to a bail bondsman on his $100,000 bail. That allows his family to recover the money rather than paying the nonrefundable fee to a bondsman.
The recent charges will delay his 33 month prison sentence that he was scheduled to begin serving today. Manos was convicted earlier this year of stealing $112,000 in public donations intended for the families of Sgt. Mark Renninger and officers Tina Griswold, Ronald Owens and Greg Richards. The four were gunned down Nov. 29, 2009, at a Parkland coffee shop.
He also confessed to embezzling $47,000 from the Lakewood Police Independent Guild, the union that represents rank-and-file officers.
