Gerry Nagel, one of the owners of Willowrush Promotion, based in Indiana, has confirmed that the Overland Park (KS) Antique Show (most recently held last weekend) has been sold. No word on the owner or price, but speculation is that it is a resident of the metropolitan Kansas City area.
Antique shops in Liberty, Belton and Harrisonville, MO — and maybe more in the greater KC area — have been hit recently with a bad-check writer. The woman passing the bad checks is described as in her 40s, reddish-blond hair and approximately 5' 3". She travels with a male companion. The name on the check and Nebraska driver's license is Heidi R Aerts, 14906 Martha Circle, Omaha, NE 68144. The phone number (402-498-9888), usually written on the check, is for a Day Care Center. The check is drawn on Enterprise Bank, Omaha, NE, and the account is closed.
DO NOT ACCEPT THIS PERSON'S CHECK OR ONE FROM HER COMPANION, AND CALL POLICE IF SHE SHOWS UP IN YOUR SHOP.
