Hells Angel Hits $1.45 Million Jackpot While In Prison

A lotto winner from Australia has drawn controversy after winning a $1.45 million jackpot while being held behind bars for his part in a $300 million drug smuggling operation.

Reginald Roberts, an associate of the Hells Angels biker gang, has been held in custody since February 2018 for his involvement in a drug smuggling operation out of Adelaide. He is currently awaiting trial.

Eyebrows were raised after the money was paid into Roberts account, and almost immediately deposited into another account thereafter. Roberts has been bankrupt since May in 2015.

The Australian Federal Police investigators flagged the transaction as suspicious, but Australian Lottery officials say there are no rules that don't allow inmates to play the lottery or claim any lottery winnings.

The $1.45 million jackpot paid to Roberts also happens to be almost identical to the $1.5 million he was ordered to pay to the Australian Taxation Office after he was caught orchestrating a diesel rebate scam.

Under current bankruptcy laws in Australia, anyone who has declared bankruptcy is required by law to inform the Australian Financial Authority, a trustee, bank authority or the ATO of any money that could be used to settle outstanding debts.
