LOUISIANA, Mo. -- A man who lists his address at a Quincy homeless shelter is accused of nine felony counts of forgery in Louisiana.

Trenton Flowers, 20, is accused of writing nine checks on his former girlfriend's account in Louisiana between Dec. 19-28, 2011. Authorities say the checks totaled nearly $370.

Louisiana police said video surveillance at a Louisiana convenience store led them to the suspect. In a probable cause statement, authorities said Flowers did not have a home and listed his address as a Quincy homeless shelter.

Flowers is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Pike County on Feb. 20.
