Woman Arrested after Trying to Cash Stolen Lottery Ticket

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Hutchinson police say a woman was booked into jail after she tried to cash in a lottery ticket that she had stolen.  Police allege the 31-year-old woman stole several lottery tickets from a convenience store on Sunday in Hutchinson by asking the clerk to retrieve another item and then running out the door with the tickets.  Police Lt. Marty Robertson says when the woman tried to cash in a winning ticket on Monday at a different location, the serial number came up as stolen and the clerk called police. When the police arrived, the woman tried to flee with two small children in her car.  The Hutchinson News reports that the woman is a suspect in earlier thefts at three other stores and in drug cases.
