Former Oswego supermarket manager arrested for writing bad checks

Allen Manwaring

A former manager of Paul's Big M supermarket in Oswego who was sued for sexual harassment four years ago was arrested this week after he allegedly passed bad checks.

The Oswego County Sheriffâ??s Office tells CNY Central that 48-year-old Allen R. Manwaring of Mexico was arrested on Thursday for three counts of issuing a bad check, a misdemeanor. Police say he wrote checks to a business in Salina on three different occasions, â??knowing there was insufficient funds in the account.â??

Manwaring made news back in 2011 when he was sued by 11 female employees who accused him of sexual harassment. He was found guilty in that case after a jury trial.

Manwaring was issued an appearance ticket for Thursdayâ??s arrest and is scheduled to appear in Scriba Town Court on February 27.
