SPENCER - A Sioux Falls man has been indicted by a McCook County grand jury for allegedly manipulating the outcome of a video lottery machine.

On Feb. 16, Ronald Demand is accused of tampering with a video lottery machine at the Spencer Fuel Mart in an attempt to manipulate its outcome.

On the same day, 47-year-old Demand is accused of causing intentional property damage, estimated to be worth at least $400 but less than $1,000, to the video lottery machine. Demand was also charged by the grand jury with second-degree petty theft for allegedly taking less than $400 from the Spencer Fuel Mart.
