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.

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.
