Clerks Charged With Trying To Steal Lottery Winnings
11/23/2009

Attorney General Steve Six, along with Kansas Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten, announced today that six people were charged with attempting to steal lottery winnings. The Attorney General’s Office filed the charges last week in five counties.

Undercover investigators visited retail stores with lottery tickets known to be winners. In six instances, the store clerk claimed the lottery ticket was not a winning ticket, when in fact it was. The clerk then attempted to collect the prize personally or through another individual.

“This undercover operation was conducted to ensure that Kansans who play the lottery receive the winnings they are due,” Six said.

Each defendant was charged with Attempted Theft (level 9 nonperson felony) and Computer Crime (level 8 nonperson felony).
