Store Manager Accused of Stealing $10K in Scratch Tickets

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) -- A 50-year-old Parkersburg man has been accused of stealing more than $10,000 worth of lottery tickets from a convenience store he was managing.
Matthew Webber was arrested Thursday and charged with theft, forgery and lottery fraud. He's since been released from custody. A public phone listing for Webber couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
   Court records say the owner of a Metro Mart on Franklin Street in Cedar Falls notified lottery officials in March about suspicious activity involving the lottery tickets. Investigators say Webber had been taking scratch-off tickets for months and doctoring inventory records.
