Jury selection began in Chattanooga this morning in a federal bank fraud and post office robbery trial.

Prosecutors allege Michael Lewis Knight stole money orders from a Marion County, Tenn., post office at gunpoint in May 2010.

Documents state Knight then tried to cash the orders at the Bank of America in Chattanooga one week later and at the BB&T in Athens, Tenn., in early June.
