JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Police are investigating a BP gas station employee suspected of stealing and cashing winning lottery tickets.

Officers met with the gas station owner at the Haynes Bridge Road location. The Georgia Lottery Corporation had been at the location a few hours earlier and discovered the discrepancy before removing all lottery tickets from the location.

The owner said the employee would scratch off just enough to locate a winning amount and cash the ticket. Any losing tickets were sold to customers.

The owner said he was reviewing store footage.
