Greenwood County Sheriff Deputies responded to the Hotspot convenience store on Hwy 25 over the weekend to investigate a claim of stolen lottery tickets.
The store manager told Deputies they found a discrepancy on the register receipt on Sunday, Aug 4, 2019. After reviewing camera footage they noticed an employee taking lottery tickets and scratching them behind the register and pocketing the winning money from the tickets. At no time did they see the employee pay for any tickets.
Lanecia Lynetta Williams, 29 of Parkway Court Apartments, Greenwood was arrested and charged with Intent to Defraud Lottery and Breach of Trust with Fraud Intent.
