Alta Woman Charged With Lotto Fraud

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) – A former Iowa lottery worker has been charged with several felony fraud counts after investigators say they found criminal wrongdoing.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says in a written release Friday that Toni Hammer, of Alta, has been charged with seven felony counts of lottery fraud and one count of tampering with records, a misdemeanor.

The department says it investigated after being asked to do so by the Iowa Lottery’s security division, which said it had found discrepancies in records involving some lottery retail locations in north central Iowa.
