Man charged for stealing from mother's business

Tuesday, 16 July 2013 13:13 Published in Local News

A Missouri man faces several charges after he allegedly stole more than $1 million from a business his mother co-owned.

Prosecutors allege that Michael Britt stole the money over a six-year period. Britt worked as the bookkeeper at Gene-Del Printing in Brentwood. He told his mother that starting in 2005 he would make out checks to himself and forge the owners' signatures. Investigators say that over an 11-month period, he forged 166 checks.

Britt faces a dozen charges of forgery and is held on a $35,000 bond.

 

The heat is on in St. Louis for the next several days and Ameren has teamed with local technicians to help you save money on your air conditioning.

With temperatures into the high 90's for the next several days, Ameren Missouri wants its customers to know you can get  money back from everything from a tune up on your air conditioner to upgrading to an energy efficient unit. Cara Dolly says the utility has teamed with some 300 area contractors with rebates up to $720 on a new unit.

   Parents with children in the Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts have a lot to consider before the August 1 transfer deadline.  

   The Children's Education Alliance of Missouri hosted a town hall meeting Monday night to help parents wade through the complicated transfer process.  

   CEAM State Policy Director Kate Casas says parents need to know their kids can go to any nearby, accredited district, and not just the ones their home districts will bus to.  "It's really about getting accurate information and putting the power in the hands of parents to make the right choice for their own kid," Casas said.

   The applications must list the student's three top choices of accredited districts.  School assignments will then be based on a lottery system.  The transfers will only last until the student's home district regains accreditation.

   The meeting was held at the Lewis and Clark Library in the Riverview Garden's School District.
