WINNIPEG - A Manitoba judge has ruled a woman accused of stealing lottery tickets for four years while working at a gas station must pay back over $425,000.
Justice Theodor Bock says the case against Cynthia Hallick was overwhelming.
A statement of claim alleged Hallick stole a vast quantity of tickets while working at the station in Dugald.
The station’s owner was notified in 2019 by his accountant that the store was losing money in lottery sales.
A video camera recorded Hallick taking tickets during one of her shifts.
