Barren Co. woman arrested on theft charge


A Barren County woman was arrested on a theft charge Monday following a Cave City Police Department investigation.

Megan Smith, 34, of Cave City was charged with theft by unlawful taking over $500 but under $10,000 after the investigation revealed that Smith had been cashing in non-winning lottery tickets at Minit Mart in Cave City and taking the money for herself since August, said a Cave City Police Department said.

Police determined that Smith took $3,000 from the convenience store, the press release said.

Smith was lodged in the Barren County Detention Center. A bond is pending, according to the jail's website.
