BOLD SWINDLING ACT
I K. C. Amman, bookkeper in
! Lmat'a county, was arrested
iavino. swindied the C0Unty out
padding of payrolls and the cashing of forged time checks. Just
J how much money Amman" secured through his operations had
not been ascertained this afternon but behind the story is a gel-rich-quick
romance that is startling in its boldness.
Amman was taken into custody late this afternoon after a
warrant for his arrest had been secured from Justice Richards
at Athena by C. Z. 'Randall, deputy prosecuting attorney. Mr.
Randall in company with County Judge I. M. Schannep, who
first learned of suspicious facts regarding the bookkeper, have
worked on the case for two days and have been assisted in their
probe by Roadmaster L. J. Shannon.
It was discovered by the investigators that Amman has been
making heavy .deposits at local banks almost ever since he en
tered upon his duties last September. At times the deposits
have run above .$1000 a month and the lowest month was $400.
These heavy deposits from a man drawing a salary of $200 a
month were regarded as suspicious and a check up showed that
forged time checks had been used, it is said.
One system alleged to have been practiced bv the bookkeep
er ww .to insert an additional sheet of names in the road payroll ,

Other times additional nnmo
The check on which the warrant for Amman's" arrest was is
sued was one made to George E. Barr. The name of Barr was
endorsed on the check, presumably by Amman, and he had !
then endorsed the check himself. Mr. Earr denies he ever re
ceived the warrant or had endorsed it. According to officials
the fraudulent work was at times very carefully handled but at
other times the bookkeeper grew careless and covered his plot
This forenoon Amman was sent on a mission tr Stanfiplrl nnrl
a final search made during his absence confirmed the suspicion i
of hm wrong doing. The warrant for the arrest was secured at
Athena because Judge Parkes is

A peculiar feature of the Amman case is that his alleged i
fraudulent work was underway at the time the county books !
were audited in January and the doctoring of tho time sheets j
and time checks was not discovered..
