BONDURANT, Iowa (AP) - A man has been accused of stealing more than $10,000 worth of Iowa lottery scratch tickets while working at a store in Polk County.

Court records say 27-year-old Matthew Hinrichs, of Bondurant, is charged with lottery ticket theft or forgery. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Hinrichs. His next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 10.

A criminal complaint says Hinrichs was fired after being caught stealing the tickets from Brick Street Market in Bondurant, where he’d worked since 2014. The complaint says he claimed winnings from those tickets at other retail locations.
