Police issue warning about forged checks

Police say someone is forging checks belonging to a 77-year-old Eudora woman killed in a fire in February 2003.

Four checks belonging to Naomi Kidd have surfaced at Lawrence businesses in the past week, Lawrence police say.

The checks are from Kidd’s personal account and from a church scholarship fund from which she was the treasurer.

Police are asking any businesses to call the police department at 841-7210 and ask for an officer to be sent to the scene if anyone is trying to pass the checks.

Kidd died Feb. 6, 2003, of smoke inhalation at a fire at her home at Ninth and Ash streets in Eudora.
