A Shipshewana woman was accused of stealing over $100,000 worth of lottery tickets from a gas station she worked at.

The owner of the Middlebury gas station contacted a Hoosier Lottery investigator and looked through security tapes.

The cameras showed 35-year-old Joehanna Marchand hiding a pack of lottery tickets, without paying for them.

The Hoosier Lottery found that 145 packs of tickets had been activated, but not sold.

The Elkhart Truth reports that the missing packs were used from May of 2019 to February of 2020.

Marchand pleaded guilty, now facing up to 6 years in prison.

She also has to pay for damages and attorney fees.
