A Madisonville, Tennessee lottery scam could be the biggest since the state started selling tickets in January.
A Madisonville clerk who worked at the Checkered Flag Market on Highway 411 could serve prison time for ripping off a store and the state lottery.
A detective in Madisonville arrested Lisa Moses at work Wednesday. She's charged with stealing more than $18,000. It breaks down as $10,000 from the store and $8,000 from the lottery.
Investigators think Moses would steal tickets and cash the winning ones in at other stores. She's also accused of scratching off tickets and activating them if they won.
The arrest warrant says she stole $10,000 from her manager's office at the Checkered Flag. Her arrest came after the store owners became suspicious about missing money and lottery tickets.
It wasn't hard to catch Moses after they checked the store's security cameras. One detective said Moses dventually admitted her scheme.
The Tennessee Lottery office has been notified.
Moses is out of jail on bond.
