CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Trials have been scheduled for two northern Iowa men accused of cheating at a state-sponsored fishing tournament.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1NyYF9l ) that 25-year-old Jason Schuttler, of Manly, and 23-year-old Aaron Lauber, of Clear Lake, have pleaded not guilty to one count each of felony theft. They’re accused of cheating during the Yellow Bass Bonanza fishing tournament on Clear Lake on Feb. 8. They won a prize package valued at $1,500.

The Iowa Natural Resources Department later received a tip that some of the fish were caught outside of the tournament’s hours of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Schuttler’s trial is set for June 9. Lauber’s is scheduled for June 23.
