The man, who she thought was a customer, was actually an undercover agent for the Florida Lottery Commission’s security division, according to WBBH. 

After scanning the ticket and seeing it was worth $600, Baton allegedly took $5 out of her purse and gave it to the man. Baton kept the winning ticket, which was later found in her notebook, WBBH reported.
