A Glen Head, New York, convenience store clerk stole about $64,000 in scratch-off lottery tickets from the business over a three-month period, Nassau County police said Tuesday.

Donna King, 48, of 26 Clement St., Glen Cove, faces a charge of second-degree grand larceny and was arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead, where bail was set at $2,500 bond or $1,250 cash, records show. She's due back in court Thursday.

From February through May, King worked at the counter of the Super 7 Mini Mart at 242 Glen Cove Ave., police said. In that time, she took various types of New York Lottery scratch-off tickets without paying for them, police said.

After an investigation by Third Squad detectives, police arrested King at her home early Tuesday.

I wonder if any of the stolen tickets were  big winners?I'm sure there were numerous break even tickets,though.You know the ones I'm talking about,the lottery considers them winners but you actually just break even by getting your money back.

        I think a big winner would cause panic and a run for hiding....... Crying

            She looks like she could rip your arms off for talking about her like that.

              At least this thief was a clerk, and not a lotteryworker.

                $$64,000 in three months????  She was on a real streak!!  She had the habit, ...she only needed a place to pay for it...wonder if they will send her to gambler's anonymous as part of her sentence.

                If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                You never know when you will get another hit.

                      With $10. and $20. tickets  (The kind MM does NOT offer) it probably wasn't too hard. Especially if the store doesn't do inventory for 3 months at a time. LOL

                        l humorously mentioned her being a Church Organ Player because in a way she reminded me of another guy no one suspected of being who he was..

                          It was taken as humor til you posted WHY......

                          Its WAY too big a stretch to compare her to a serial killer turned contract killer for the mafia...Thumbs Down
