Kellie Keim

The Dalia Deli Time-Saver convenience store, located at 12300 Manatee Ave. W., just landward of the bridge to Anna Maria Island, was the victim of a lottery ticket rip-off by an employee, according to a report from the Bradenton Police Department.

The report said Kellie Keim, 31, of Bradenton, was seen on store surveillance video tape playing lottery tickets.

She would rip several tickets off at a time and play them. When Keim would win, she would take the money out of the cash register drawer for the lottery winnings but failed to pay for the tickets.

The total value of stolen tickets was $360, according to the report.
