Trial Scheduled for Edgewood Woman Accused of Unemployment Fraud

MANCHESTER, Iowa (AP) — A trial is scheduled to begin June 5 for an eastern Iowa woman accused of fraudulently collecting more than $8,400 in unemployment benefits.

Delaware County court records say 29-year-old Laura Heims, of Edgewood, has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of fraudulent practice.

Court documents say Heims received benefits between March 18 and Aug. 25, 2018, despite being employed by Dolgencorp LLC, which operates Dollar General stores.
