'Dumb Crook' award goes to Melissa Sharon Mayes. How did she expect to cash these in when they won't show up as being sold? What a wasted effort as stealing...LOLOLOLOL

The lottery robs from those who are bad at math.

I have seen people with only 25 bucks buy
25 tickets to win 5 dollahs and think they came out ahead becuz they had 5 dollahs to bring home milk for the baby....

I knew her when she was a kid. Let's just say she wasn't the sharpest saw in the shed. Her nickname was "Goober", if that tells you anything. It's actually very sad, because she grew up very poor, and I'm sure she is trying to make ends meet. But still....

I have heard there is more to the story than was told. I heard Goober, her mother and brother all 3 were fired from the F&J store they worked at for helping themselves to things that wasn't theirs to take. Maybe the stories were not true. I guess only they know the truth.

Maybe she was taking cue from the former Sheriff and his "gambling gang" of thieves?

This case was dismissed. The problem was not theft but bad accounting

I love how everything people see on TV they believe. I think you should be innocent till proven guilty.(Which didn't happen.)

I think talking trash about a child you once knew is a testament to you're intelligence. By the way the case was dismissed.
