BULLHEAD CITY–A local woman was arrested Tuesday after investigations revealed the convenience store employee allegedly stole $1,500 in Arizona Lottery tickets. 

Brianna Michelle Bushey, 29, is facing a felony theft charge in connection to the case.

Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said the investigation began when officers responded to the Bullhead Parkway Maverick and spoke to the district manager regarding an employee theft. 

The manager told police Bushey was reportedly caught on surveillance pulling lottery tickets from the display case and putting them in her pants. 

The estimated cost of the stolen tickets totaled a little over $1,500 dollars, said Fromelt. Bushey is alleged to have cashed in $750 of the stolen tickets. 

She is currently being held on a $3,000 bond at the Mohave County jail in Kingman.
