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.
