Winning The Lottery Illegally

Posted: Updated:
An employee at a Wichita Falls Convenience store tried to will the lottery illegally.

Police said this stems from an investigation that began in August 2013 at JJ’s Fast Stop on the corner of McNeil and Kell West.  James Hardin McLendon Jr. is accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of scratch off tickets.  I warrant was issued and the 45-year-old was arrested and booked into the Wichita County Jail on Wednesday night.

He is charged with Embezzlement of $20,000 and two counts of Credit Card Abuse.
