OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - A masked thief was caught on camera behind the register of a Simi Valley gas station unraveling a seemingly endless supply of lottery tickets.
He just kept yanking the wheels of scratchers until he had a mighty large handful. And the bundle remained in his hands – with no bag present – when he moved beyond the camera's range.
So who’s the big winner?
That remains to be seen. But the lotto bandit is still at large and three of the tickets were cashed out within three hours of the burglary.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Simi Valley Police or Ventura County Crime Stoppers.
