When the lottery constantly rolls over, it can get pretty tight to be able to afford to buy lottery tickets. Not for this couple though, they simply stole the money and bought some – then Karma came out to play….
Joan Lechleitner, 51, and her fiancé, Kerry Titus, 54, both of Pottsville, were charged Tuesday along with two other former employees from the Agway store in Cressona for theft. The group rang up bogus returns and pocketed the money from May 2011 until March 2016.
Apparently the couple helped steal more than $175,000 from a grocery store where they worked. They then used some of the money to buy lottery tickets. The thing is, the lottery won $1 million!
Four winners split the prize of $1,047,618, with Lechleitner winning $261,904.50, state lottery officials said.
She told the newspaper that they used the money to buy a 2015 Chevy Silverado pickup and planned to honeymoon in Mexico and build a backyard pool.
Online court records list James Conville as the defense attorney for Lechleitner and Titus, who was the store’s manager. Conville didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday seeking comment on the theft, conspiracy and records tampering charges they face. A preliminary hearing has been set for July 5.
The store's owner, Ronald Yordy, reportedly installed hidden cameras, which caught the group stealing the money and buying lottery tickets, police said. Yordy told police he had to borrow money to keep the store open because of the thefts.

12 laws of Karma
The Great Law: “As you sow, so shall you reap.”
In simple terms, our thought and actions have consequences – good or bad. So, for those online lottery players who desire peace, love, harmony, and prosperity, you need to be willing to act accordingly.
Think of cause and effect. Using energy (thought and action) what we put out into the world will have a consequence.
If you don’t play the lottery, how can you win?
The Law of Creation: “What we desire comes through participation.”
How many times have you thought “I’m a good person, so why am I not winning the lottery?”
Life has energy or chi, as the Chinese call life energy, which is attached to all things. If we take the meaning further, what is energy? It is the ability or power to make something work.
Sitting passively in front on your computer, wanting to win and not actively playing the lottery gives that thought no energy!
You need to actively participate and put that energy out there.
The Law of Humility: “Refusal to accept what is will still be what is.”
We must first accept the present circumstances in order to change them. Once you have stopped focusing on the negative, you need to commit to changing it.
The Law of Growth: “Our own growth is above any circumstance.”
Let’s face it, you can’t control the lottery. It’s a game of chance, so the only thing we have control over is ourselves. By playing you’re lucky lotto numbers, the subsequent action of motive will yield either positive or negative circumstances in our lives.
True change only occurs if we make the commitment to change what is in our heart.
The Law of Responsibility: “Our lives are of our own doing, nothing else.”
When there is turbulence in one’s own life, there is often turbulence internally. If we’re to change our life, we must change our frame of mind.
The couple we just read about, should have taken responsibility for their state of affairs, and instead of making it even worse for themselves, rather have put into action a set of brand new actions to slowly but surely improve their situation.
The Law of Connection: “Everything in the Universe is connected, both large and small.”
Our past, present and future are all connected. Remember, Bruce Magistro? He recently won a massive $1 million lottery prize for the second time. The first time Bruce won, he spent most of the winnings on his late wife’s medical treatment who was battling lung cancer at the time. Ever since money was tight for the family and they were struggling to pay the bills, until Karma intervened and awarded him with another massive lottery win.
The Law of Focus: “One cannot direct attention beyond a single task.”
Most lucky people help to make their own luck because they are go-getters with a positive attitude with the will to win.
They don’t know what negativity is and pull out all the stops to achieve that sacred win and do it often. They focus continually until the magic happens. It is what sets them apart from everyone else.
The Law of Hospitality and Giving: “Demonstrating our selflessness shows true intentions.”
What we claim to believe must manifest into our actions and at some point in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate this. Allen and Violet Large made headlines in 2010 not only for winning $11.2 million, but also for giving most of it away. When the pair, in their 70s at the time, received the money, they decided that others needed it more. After setting up their family members financially, they donated the majority of their winnings to hospitals and other charitable organizations.
The Law of Change: “History repeats itself unless changed.”
Winning the lottery is hard, yes, but are you making it even harder without realising it? Not winning the lottery is one thing, but actively preventing yourself from winning is crazy. Instead, change history and play the lottery the smart way. Look at the odds of each lottery game. You might find that playing a smaller lotto game will give you five times the likelihood of winning. Want to double your chances of winning the lottery? Well it’s easy – just pick another set of numbers!
The Law of Here and Now: “The Present is all we have.”
With the Mega Millions lottery currently sitting at a massive $251 million for this Friday night’s draw – now is the time to live in the present and take the bull by horns and get those lottery numbers in!
The Law of Patience and Reward: “Nothing of value is created without a patient mindset.”
Rewards are claimed only through patience and persistence, nothing else. Don’t lose hope. The more you play the lottery, the better your chances. After all, the amount of lottery winner’s stories mentioned in our various news articles about loyal players who kept the faith for years and were eventually rewarded with millions is astonishing. You too can join the ranks of the rich and famous – all you have to do is never give up.
The Law of Significance and Inspiration: “The best reward is one that contributes to the Whole.”
This law speaks specifically to the level of energy and intent that is put into it. With each individual contribution you make towards the greater good or to the “whole,” you create an impact that begins a ripple effect that you may have never seen the end result.
