Police: NJ man charged in $33K NY lottery scam

Posted: Updated:

KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) - A New Jersey man has been charged with grand larceny after New York State Police say he scammed an elderly Hudson Valley woman out of more than $30,000.

State police say Rasheem Eccleston of East Orange, N.J., fraudulently received $33,000 from a Kingston woman as part of a lottery scam committed in September.

Eccleston was arrested last week and sent to Ulster County Jail on $50,000 bail. He's scheduled to appear in Kingston City Court on Tuesday.

It couldn't be determined if he had a lawyer.
