BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — U.S. and Jamaican authorities have apprehended another suspect in an alleged multimillion-dollar lottery scam targeting dozens of Americans.
   North Dakota U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says Gregory Gooden was arrested this week in Jamaica. Gooden was one of four fugitives still being sought in the case.
   A total of 15 people are charged with conspiracy, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. Ten who have pleaded not guilty are scheduled for trial July 17 in federal court in North Dakota. Three other suspects remain fugitives, and another is in custody in Jamaica awaiting extradition.
   Authorities allege the scam bilked at least 90 mostly elderly Americans out of more than $5.7 million. The case is being tried in North Dakota because the investigation began in the state more than five years ago.
