  • Oregon Lottery winner buys winning ticket

    MEDFORD, Ore. — A woman bought a winning lottery ticket worth $1 million with a stolen credit card and could wind up with nothing if convicted, police said.

    Christina Goodenow, 38, of White City (search) in southern Oregon faced numerous theft-related charges, forgery and possession of methamphetamine, said authorities, who searched her home Thursday. The card belonged to a deceased relative, they said.

    If convicted of any of the charges, Goodenow will not be able to collect prize money from the winning ticket, said police Lt. Tim George.

    Oregon Lottery (search) officials refused to discuss specifics of the case because an investigation is still under way.

    "I'll be fascinated to see how this shakes out," Lottery spokesman Chuck Baumann (search) said. "In my 12 years with the Oregon Lottery, this is the first time I've encountered something like this."

    Goodenow purchased the winning ticket Oct. 9 using a credit card that had belonged to her mother-in-law, who died more than a year ago, police said.

    Goodenow traveled to Oregon Lottery headquarters in Salem on Oct 12 to accept an installment payment of $33,500. The $1 million grand prize is paid out over 20 years.

    Detectives began tracking Goodenow on Wednesday after learning that she had used the credit card to purchase several items, including the ticket.

    A search warrant served at her home Thursday turned up some methamphetamine, but little money, George said.

    "Our investigation is still trying to determine what happened to the $33,500," George said.

        How can you purchase lotto tickets with a card anyways? I tried that a couple times by mistake and was told they only take cash for any lotto. No matter if it is powerball or the scratchers

                It's legal here (except in the weird gambling "bars") to use credit cards to buy tickets. I put my ticket on my debit card a couple weeks ago.
                The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.
