Liquor store worker tried to claim customer’s winning $3M lottery ticket: Cops
A liquor store worker thought she could cash out someone’s forgotten $3-million winning lottery ticket.
Unfortunately for her, the whole ordeal was captured in plain sight on a surveillance video.
Carly Nunes, of Lakeville, Mass., was working at a liquor store when she sold lottery tickets to customer Paul Little on Jan. 17, according to CNN.
However, Little forgot to pick up the tickets with the bag of chips he purchased. Prosecutors say another customer noticed the tickets and handed them back to Nunes, who was behind the counter at the cash register.
That’s when the 23-year-old allegedly kept the tickets for herself. Later that night, the Mass Millions lottery numbers were revealed and they matched those on one of Little’s tickets.
