Police are asking for the public's help to find a man who allegedly broke into a Rio Vista convenience store Thursday morning and stole numerous lottery tickets.

Around 6:10 a.m., a truck pulled up to Rio Vista Liquor at 610 state Highway 12, police said.

A man then exited the truck's passenger side and used a crow bar to pry open the store's locked front doors.

The suspect then immediately went behind the counter and took numerous lottery tickets from different rolls, before leaving.

He then got back into the passenger's side of the truck.

The truck was last seen fleeing east on Highway 12, heading toward the Rio Vista Bridge, police said.

The truck was described as a tan or gray pick-up truck with a camper.

The suspect was described as a white man, between 35 and 40 years old, with brown hair and wearing a blue or black long-sleeved shirt, dark colored pants and light colored gloves, police said.

The store's surveillance camera was able to capture images of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Rio Vista police at (707) 374-2300.
