A 24-year-old woman was booked into the Richmond County Jail on Monday after authorities said she cashed in stolen lottery tickets in 2009.



According to an incident report, the owner at Carolyn’s, 2416 Windsor Spring Road, discovered that 57 $1 lottery tickets had been removed from a locked dispensing box behind the counter.

Four winning tickets from the bunch were later cashed in at a store on Rosier Road. The value of the winning tickets was not provided.

April Nicole Pleze, 24, has been charged with violation of the Georgia Lottery Act. Authorities said they had been searching for her for some time.
