Walter Robert Dickson appeals his conviction for the interstate transportation of a falsely made and forged security in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2314. Finding no error we affirm.


The definition of a security in 18 U.S.C. Sec. 2311 includes a document "transferring or assigning any right, title, or interest in or to goods, wares, and merchandise . . ." On consideration of the briefs, record, and argument, we conclude that the district court properly ruled that this definition of a security embraced a "statement of source of title" of a motor vehicle and that the evidence was sufficient to sustain the judgment.
