Norwood Girl Forges Teacher’s Name to Three Checks and Secures $65 at Bank
NORWOOD MESSENGER-Nov 6, 1942
A case of crookedness out of the ordinary was brought to light today when it was found that a girl, 12 years of age had forged the name of her teacher on three checks to the amount of $65 and raised the cash on them at the bank.
It seemed that she stole her teachers check book and from the stubs made out a check to a party to whom the teacher was accustomed to make checks.
She got the cash on that and this encouraged her to try it again. No suspicion was aroused at the bank as children had often cashed these same checks and the handwriting was of such a character to be easily taken for that of the teacher The larger part of the money was recovered.
