MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Maryville say when a market owner couldn't reconcile lottery ticket receipts, he pulled surveillance video and found a clerk had been stealing tickets.
Police Chief Tony Crisp says when the store owner confronted Linda Dillow, she confessed to taking scratch-off tickets while working as a clerk. Crisp says Dillow's husband, Charles Ray Dillow, also was working there as a part time clerk and is also accused of stealing tickets.
The Maryville couple are charged with stealing property worth more than $10,000 each.
The amount of tickets stolen is believed to be around $30,000.
Crisp says investigators are working with lottery officials to find out how many winning tickets the couple cashed in.
