          Fred Collier, arrested here Thursday night on a charge of intoxicaton and sentenced to serve 11 days in the county jail will be taken to Greensburg when his time has been completed here. Collier lives near Nineveh in Johnson county.
          Chief Johnson of the Greensburg police force was here today, investigating Collier's case. He is alleged to have passed two worthless checks in Greensburg recenlty.  The checks were for $20 and $5. A receipt of fare paid which was found on Collier's person when he was arrested here showed that he had come here Thursday from Greensburg.
          When taken in charge here he had a check on a Greensburg bank, which had been filled out, the officers say.  Collier, it was stated, attempted to hide the check by placing it in his cap.
