Court documents show Gates cashed two of the checks at Wal-Mart on Keller Street and cashed one at Joseph Brothers Market, 196 Lake Ave. But when he tried to cash a second check at Joseph Brothers, which had been notified the first check was a forgery, he left the store, leaving behind both the check and his ID.

Says she’s not his ex
Benjamin Harding, 31, of 6 Craig Dr., Merrimack, pleaded innocent Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a misdemeanor charge of simple assault that alleges he told an ex-girlfriend, while he was at a Karatzas Avenue address, that he was going to get a gun and put it to her head.
Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety, with conditions barring contact with the alleged victim. But a police prosecutor said there is a warrant from Hillsborough County Superior Court for Harding, because he owes more than $600 in fines.
Megan Latanowich, 25, of 12 Knight St., pleaded innocent Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to charges of disobeying a police officer and contempt of court.
