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.

Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
