Raleigh, N.C. — The State Bureau of Investigation charged a Youngsville police officer Thursday with stealing lottery tickets and trying to cash them in at various supermarkets.
Jeremy N. Montejano, 24, of Wake Forest, was charged with seven counts of obtaining property by false pretense. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
According to warrants, Montejano tried to cash more than $2,300 in stolen lottery tickets at stores between November 2008 and last August. One warrant said he tried to defraud the North Carolina Education Lottery of another $1,000 by trying to cash in winning tickets that he never bought.
