The bank manager advised that Amanda Roberts and Michiko Henderson brought in two checks from Wheeler & Sons Livestock Auction. Both females tried to cash checks with false names and identifications. While speaking with the females, the deputy noticed that Henderson had three driver licenses with three different names. Both females were arrested and a request for prosecution was signed.
