A regional manager for the Kentucky Lottery Corporation is accused of fraudulently using lottery tickets after an investigation into 1,800 missing tickets, according to the Kentucky State Police.
Jeffrey L. Riley, 55, of Lexington, was charged Friday with three counts of fraudulent use of a lottery ticket, a class C felony.
Riley's arrest followed an internal investigation in January into 1,800 missing promotional lottery tickets. The investigation determined that Riley had redeemed or validated missing tickets at a Georgetown location on three separate occasions, state police said.
Riley was processed into the Scott County Detention Center and was later released on his own recognizance, the release said.
