Kentucky LotteryKentucky Lottery: Convenience Store Employee Accused Of Altering Lottery Tickets

A northern Kentucky woman has been indicted for allegedly altering lottery tickets.

Catlettsburg convenience store employee Barbara Steele of Ashland was indicted by a Boyd County grand jury last week. Steele, 26, faces one count of lottery fraud, a crime punishable by five to 10 years in prison.

The indictment accuses Steele of altering stolen state lottery tickets at the "Fast Lane" store in Catlettsburg with the intent to defraud. Commonwealths Attorney J. Stewart Schneider says Steele allegedly scanned several tickets while at work on August 31st, looking for winners.

He said the serial number can indicate if a ticket is a winner.

    The story has not enough information. She altered tickets but then she scanned the tickets? Did she try to change the serial numbers and then hope the number came up as a winner? Is anybody that stupid? Stupid question!
