    IN - Former lottery officer charged with disclosing where $1M ticket was on sale

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Prosecutors charged a former lottery security officer with telling two men that a winning ticket in a $1 million US scratch-off game had been sent to a small town grocery store.

    William Foreman, 59, was arrested Monday and charged with felony counts of disclosing confidential lottery information and theft, Marion County prosecutor Carl Brizzi said. He faces up to 50 years in prison.

    Foreman told an acquaintance, Chad Adkins, and Daniel Foltz in May that a winning ticket in the $2,000,000 Bonus Spectacular game had been sent to a store in Cross Plains in southeastern Indiana, Brizzi said. One of the men then spent about $700 to buy the store's entire supply of the game's $20 tickets, according to court documents.

    I didn't know that they knew the stores where the winners went. I don't think that's right.

    It IS kinda B.S. I can see that they need to make sure they only have so many winners, but they should never know where they end up.
