The former manager of a Quincy convenience store has pleaded guilty to theft charges.

In Adams County Circuit Court Tuesday, 51 year old Machelle Goehl pleaded guilty to one count of theft over $10,000.

According to the Adams County State’s Attorney’s office, officials with Ayerco found a bookkeeping issue with Illinois Lottery ticket sales at their station at 18th and Broadway where Goehl was manager in 2016 and 2017.

Goehl is alleged to have taken lottery scratchers tickets without paying for them, then manipulating the books to hide the theft.

A plea deal promised Goehl would be sentenced to probation and restitution. Sentencing is set for March 14th.
