SALISBURY — A former convenience store employee stole nearly $700 worth of lottery tickets with which she won $500, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

She now faces multiple felony larceny charges.

The Sheriff’s Office charged Britteny Goodnight, 25, of Lake Landing Drive, with 25 counts of felony larceny by an employee. She has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $5,000 secured bond.

The thefts were reported Friday, but officials said they began Feb. 8 at Lentz General Store, 9020 Stokes Ferry Road.

According to reports, Goodnight took 215 lottery tickets that were valued at $699. She won $500 and paid out $248. She was arrested Friday.

She is expected in District Court on April 25.
