The  Shelby  Democrat
August 11, 1921
          The firm name of  Sandman Bros., auto accessory dealers of east Washington street, was used as the signature on two forged checks which were cashed at the Farmer's National Bank and the First National Bank in this city.  An investigation of the forgeries is being made by the officers who hope to discover the young boy who presented the checks at the two banks.
          Both checks were made payable to "William McCoy" and were drawn on the Shelbyville Trust Co., where the firm banking is carried on.  Both checks also bore the signature of the firm, which was imitated very well, but was detected when the checks arrived at the banking house of the firm.  The check cashed at the Farmers National Bank was for $10 and was cashed Saturday, July 30; the check at the First National Bank was for $20 and was cashed last Saturday.  The boy who presented the checks arrived at the banks shortly after the opening at 6 o'clock in the evening when there is always a crowd collected at the windows and therefore the checks were cased without questioning.
