Unlucky Day: Woman Charged for Stolen Lottery Tickets

Shana Manzi also charged with burglary in connection with a 2011 case.

Shana Manzi, 25, of 9 Sapling Circle #5, Nashua, was arrested Oct. 15 on an active arrest warrant charging her with two counts of theft by unauthorized taking, a class A misdemeanor.

Police say Manzi stole lottery tickets from a south end convenience store back in August.

According to a police narrative, on August 15 police were called to the store for the report of a theft. Upon arrival, officers learned that a woman had stolen lottery tickets on August 13 and again on August 14.

Lt. Francis Sullivan said Manzi allegedly waited until the store clerk was distracted and then reached over the counter and grabbed a handful of scratch tickets.

"The number of tickets was relatively small and probably amounted to about $100-worth each day," Sullivan said.

One identified, an arrest warrant was issued for Manzi, who was arrested without incident on Oct. 15.

Manzi is also a suspect in two residential burglaries that occurred in October 2011 in the south end of Nashua, Sullivan said. The investigation was furthered by police detectives and resulted in Manzi being charged with two counts of burglary, each a class B felony.

Manzi was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bail, pending arraignment in the 9th Circuit Nashua District Division Court.
