Former Lottery Employee Accused Of Embezzling $200,000

COLUMBIA, S.C. -

A former South Carolina lottery employee has been indicted on accusations he stole more than $200,000 from the agency.
    
Attorney General Alan Wilson announced Monday that a Richland County grand jury indicted 55-year-old Anthony McNeil of Columbia on a change of embezzlement of public funds.
    
McNeil was in charge of collecting payments from retailers for the state lottery. Lottery Director Paula Bethea has said the money was taken from the agency's operations side and did not involve the games.
    
The indictment accuses McNeil of taking the money between 2010 and 2012 by using a scheme that involved overcharges, computer changes, bank account sweeps and the redirecting of funds.
