STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A northwest Iowa woman accused of stealing a winning lottery scratch game ticket has pleaded not guilty.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2avQQXl ) that Ashley Bosler, of Sioux Rapids, entered the pleas Monday in Storm Lake to charges of theft of a lottery ticket or share and abetting theft of a lottery ticket or share. Her trial is to begin Nov. 15.

Prosecutors say Bosler was working at a convenience store when she found the winning ticket by scratching off a corner and scanning the bar code that confirmed it was a winner of a $250,000 prize.

Prosecutors say she hadn’t paid for the ticket and was too young to play, so she asked a co-worker to sign it and eventually her boyfriend, who tried unsuccessfully to claim it.
