Broward Sheriff’s Office worker faces charges over $65,000 lottery ticket fraud

Pompano Beach, Florida – A Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) community service aide was apprehended on Monday on serious charges including grand theft and obtaining property by fraud. The arrest, made by deputies from the BSO Pompano Beach District, brings to light allegations involving a significant amount of stolen lottery tickets.

Chantalle Civil, 44, who is employed as a community service aide at BSO and also worked at a local 7-11 store, is at the center of this controversy. Over the course of one month, from late April to late May, suspicious activity was noted at the 7-11 store located at 2391 North Dixie Highway in Pompano Beach, where Civil was an employee. Store employees initially noticed an unusually high volume of lottery tickets being sold, which sparked an internal audit by the store management.

The audit revealed that Civil had printed out lottery tickets worth $65,000 without making any payment. According to the investigation led by local detectives, Civil managed these transactions while the cash register was assigned under her name during her shifts. It was also discovered that she visited the store on her days off specifically to use the lottery terminal, further implicating her in the fraudulent activities.

The ongoing investigation into these allegations underscores the severity of the accusations against Civil, who has been a part of the Broward Sheriff’s Office since August 2002. Following her arrest, she was promptly placed on administrative leave without pay and is currently assigned to BSO’s Oakland Park District pending further proceedings.

This case continues to develop as more details emerge, and the local community remains shocked by the actions of a trusted public servant. Civil’s dual role at both the 7-11 store and as a community service aide has certainly added a layer of complexity to her alleged offenses, leaving many awaiting the outcome of this legal battle.
