7-Eleven clerk arrested for pocketing $550,000 winning lottery ticket

The Sacramento Bee reports:

Authorities arrested a 7-Eleven clerk after a man accused of her pocketing his winning lottery ticket worth $555,000, then handing him a $4 “prize” instead.

Rajinder Kaur, 40, was arrested this week on suspicion of grand theft, and the Mega Millions ticket was recovered, officials said.

The man who picked the winning numbers went to the convenience store in the Sacramento suburb to redeem his prize Aug. 16. He knew he had won something, but did know not how much.

The clerk told him it was worth $4 and kept his ticket.
