Family members charged with lottery crimes

November 1, 2012

Three members of a Seneca family have been arrested and charged with defrauding the S.C. Education Lottery and conspiracy to commit fraud. The crimes are alleged to have occurred at the Loco Mart #2 on the Wells Highway where, according to the police, two of the three worked until they were fired October 23. The third family member arrested was identified as the husband of one of the dismissed convenience store employees. Law enforcement authorities say multiple charges have been filed against the former store workers, Justin Ross Oprandi and Stephanie Long Oprandi, and Mrs. Oprandi’s husband, Derek Jackson Oprandi. The police and lottery officials were attempting to determine how many lottery tickets were stolen and how many were cashed.
