JASPER — Police arrested a convenience store’s assistant manager Friday, accusing her of theft and violating Indiana gambling statutes.
The Jasper Police Department is alleging that, during the evening hours Wednesday and morning hours Thursday, Amy N. Biddle, 34, 314 W. 14th St., Jasper, the assistant manager of the Circle A at 1402 N. Newton St., took multiple lottery tickets, scratched them off and then used the winnings to purchase the tickets after having redeemed them.
Police are accusing Biddle of stealing the lottery tickets, then using the stolen money to purchase additional tickets. The amount of lottery tickets stolen was approximately $300, with Biddle having a $0 net sum upon using all of her illicit winnings to purchase additional tickets, according to police.
