LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested two people accused of trying to cash stolen lottery tickets.

It happened on Monday afternoon. According to arrest reports, 19-year-old Ashley Miles admitted to police that she stole lottery tickets from one gas station and tried to cash them at another gas station. Police say her father, 51-year-old William Miles, also tried to cash the tickets. 

There were four tickets in question, worth $25 each, for a total worth of $100.

The gas station, knowing the tickets had been stolen, sent the pair to the Kentucky Lottery headquarters on W. Main Street, near S. 10th Street, according to the arrest reports. Lottery officials then called police, who showed up at the Kentucky Lottery headquarters, shortly before 3 p.m. on Monday, to arrest them.

Both suspects are charged with altering, forging, uttering, passing or counterfeiting a lottery ticket.
