Scratch and Lose: Ariel Sinclair, 23, apparently hatched a scheme to rip off a Virginia Beach, Va., drugstore where she worked as an assistant manager. According to police, Sinclair gained access to the store’s lottery machine to steal nearly $6,000 in cash. But her plan wasn’t foolproof. “If you’re providing your fingerprint to access this machine, I have no idea how, in your mind, you’re thinking you’re going to get away with this,” said police spokesman Adam Bernstein. With the fingerprint record in the machine, investigators were able to easily identify who accessed it, and arrested Sinclair for embezzlement.
