Delany Ann Schaffer, 27, has been charged with lottery sales fraud after she allegedly "slightly scratched" tickets at the store where she worked to see whether they had a prize and then sold the losing ones to customers, WATE reported.
Schaffer allegedly kept winning tickets so she could claim the money herself. She came under suspicion after a customer reported the scratched tickets to a lottery inspector.
Surveillance video showed Schaffer scratching at the tickets more than once, according to a report obtained by WATE.
Schaffer, who was arrested Thursday, is being held on $10,000 bond at the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility and has not yet entered a plea. She faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
