Jim Thorpe Police Department is asking banks and members of the public to be on the lookout for a woman accused of cashing bad checks.

Amanda Marie Dranginis, 33, of Michigan, is wanted on an active arrest warrant from Jim Thorpe Police Department.

Police said that Dranginis cashed two fraudulent checks from Mauch Chunk Trust Company and Jim Thorpe Neighborhood Bank this week. She also allegedly tried to cash two more.

Dranginis has been using a bad Palmerton address, police said.

She was last seen traveling as a passenger in a black Nissan Rogue SUV. Police are attempting to confirm the registration for the vehicle.

Dranginis has a history of cashing fraudulent checks in other parts of Carbon County as well as Monroe, Schuylkill, Northampton and Lehigh counties.

Jim Thorpe Police have charged Dranginis with two counts of forgery and two counts attempted forgery — all felonies, and two counts each of theft and receiving stolen property.

Anyone who sees Dranginis or knows her whereabouts is asked to call Jim Thorpe Police Department at 570-325-4995, or Carbon County Communication Center at 570-325-9111.


Why should the public do the work that Lee Marzen should be doing? He couldn't report a missing black man that was found dead months later. The Times News should be filing a RTK request with Children & Youth for the results of their investigation into Defective Marzen for child abuse.
If I'm an idiot for stating facts and showing certain peoples true colors then IDIOT is a title I will proudly claim. And I'm not a meth head. Give me your name I'll give DNA a release for you for my urine screens that the Government pays for. I'm very transparent and accountable, the PSP can vouch for me.
The Lehighton Area School District had a bout of fraud concerning bad checks. The business manager back then suggested a bank change to the finance committee. The finance committee collected data and recommended the board change bank vendors. The board approved the change and provided the time line
and procedures to transition to a new bank. (9-0 vote).

Then, our past treasurer, Andrew Yenser, immorally defied the direct lawful order of the government board, and failed to implement the change that was projected protect the district from fraud and earn more interest.

In my opinion the district is better off that Andrew Yenser will not be back on the board. We only have four immoral people left on the board. A moral majority has been obtained with the fall election. God Bless America. A government of, by and for the people has been restored.
