Pennsylvania LotteryPennsylvania Lottery: Pa. store clerk accused of stealing over $17K worth of lottery ticketsRating:

MEYERSDALE, Pa. — Police in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, say a woman stole more than $17,000 worth of lottery tickets from a Sheetz store where she worked.

According to a criminal complaint, 37-year-old Cheryl Delawder was confronted by her manager after she was seen on video taking tickets from the lottery machines.

Police say during an interview, Delawder admitted to police to stealing the tickets and cashing them out at different locations. According to the complaint, Delawder told police she had been stealing the tickets from November 2019 to January 2020.

The complaint states Delawder would take packs of lottery tickets on nights when she was scheduled to do checkouts.

Delawder told police she would take extra packs of tickets to activate at the cash register and would only put some of the tickets back in the machine. According to the complaint, Delawder would then hide the rest of the tickets under her clipboard and would hide in the freezer to put them in her pocket.

Police say Delawder admitted to taking the tickets home, scratching them and then taking the winning tickets to the Sheetz in Meyersdale and Somerset, as well as the Giant Eagle and Walmart in Somerset. Of those tickets, Delawder says she received around $3,000, according to police.

In total, police say Delawder stole $17,100 worth of tickets.

Court documents show Delawder faces charges of retail theft, receiving stolen property and more. She was released from custody on an unsecured $20,000 bond.

    That was a very SHEETy thing Cheryl Delawder did. With security cameras all over the store, did she not think she would get caught? No No

    Also, $3,000 return on $17,000 worth of tickets.... not too good of a return rate on PA scratchers.

      "I've been to Meyersdale"

      It's been a long time, but I've been there, too. My grandfather moved there when he got remarried, to a local girl (or local senior citizen). Pretty much everything in that area is in the middle of nowhere. I can still remember getting off the turnpike at Bedford, and then seeing nothing but the road and trees for the next hour.

        Never been there but looking up the pics of the Town on Google, and it screams " Witness  Protection" dropoff location. Didn't they film " It" there?

            "I have not been to Meyersdale."

            Then you should do something about it before it's too late. The last thing you'd want is to be laying on your deathbed and realizing that you're going to die without getting to Meyersdale. If you go the last weekend of March or the first weekend of April you can check out the 73rd annual Pennsylvania Maple Festival. It's not as well known, but PA produces Maple Syrup that's just as good as you'd find in VT.

            And in the mostly useless trivia department, the highest point in PA, Mt Davis, is only 10 miles away. In the politically incorrect trivia department, Mt Davis is both the highest and northernmost summit of Negro Mountain, a ridge that extends from northern Maryland.

            How could you possibly risk dying before crossing that visit off of your bucket list? You're already to late to see the "Negro Mountain" signs on a couple of Maryland highways, because they were removed. Last September.

              That ain't much of an advertisement, but it probably beats watching an episode of "My Lottery Dream Home" as most things do.
