A Mississippi woman allegedly stole more than $31,000 worth of lottery tickets from her former employer.

Randi Monzon, 31, of Horn Lake is charged with 12 counts of burglary and one count of property theft up to $60,000.

On Feb. 24, Memphis police officers responded to a burglary at a Memphis convenience store. A store worker told police that Monzon, who is a former employee, used a key to enter the store 12 different times between December and February.

Monzon was allegedly caught on security cameras during a Feb. 9 burglary.

Monzon reportedly stole $31,500 worth in lottery tickets and $2,500 in cash.

Monzon reportedly confessed to Memphis investigators Wednesday after waiving her rights.

She was taken to jail and then later released on her own recognizance.
