A 24-year-old Michigan man was arrested this week on a charge that he stole more than $20,000 worth of lottery tickets from his employer and redeemed the winning tickets at businesses across Wayne County.
State Police said Jerry Allen Gallup worked at Hazel's Party Store in Taylor, where he was accused of taking Michigan Lottery Instant Game Tickets.
The winning tickets were cashed in at more than 30 locations in Wayne County, police said.
Police said Gallup confessed to the theft, and a warrant was issued charging him with embezzlement over $1,000.
He was arrested at his home Monday and arraigned in the 23rd District Court of Taylor. Bond was set at $1,000.
If convicted, Gallup faces up to five years in prison and fines of $13,000.
