Police arrest lottery ticket thief

Texas LotteryTexas Lottery: Police arrest lottery ticket thief

A routine audit of lottery tickets conducted by the Texas Lottery Commission showed that more than $37,000 in scratch-off tickets were missing from a Flower Mound convenience store.

The tickets were missing from a Diamond Shamrock station in the 220 block of Long Prairie Road.

Police later arrested a store employee, Joanna Diaz, on charges of theft.

Routine audit by the lottery? You'd think the stores would watch those things closer and realize that many missing!

    Someone wasn't taught the proper bookkeeping to run a lotto store.

        it was the same with the plcae i used to work at.  at the end of every night, my boss would have me write down the instant ticket numbers, and then he would take a look at the sales reports for the day, and then he would count the drawer for the night.

        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            Too many Ma & Pa stores selling tickets have to hire outside of family.  These stores depend on honest family members working cheap and non-family members aren't cheap or honest.  They usually go out of business without family support.

             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

              That's mom & pop. Ma & Pa are two states with questionable online games.
