New York police have arrested a Walmart employee after she was caught allegedly taking home more than $10,000 in lottery tickets that she printed herself without paying.
Investigators say corporate officials alerted their Hempstead location in Long Island after discovering a disparity in New York State lottery ticket sales between January and March of this year, Fox 5 NY reports.
Hawkins, 46, was charged with grand larceny and arraigned in Hempstead on Wednesday.
It is not immediately clear if the tickets Hawkins had printed were winners.
