NYPD Officials Searching For Man That Reportedly Stole Over $10,000 Worth Of Lottery Tickets!

Cousins! A man accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of lottery tickets is assuring his chances of winning are up regardless of the circumstances—after making out with countless scratch off tickets!

According to reports from Pix 11 news the New York Police Department is currently seeking help from the public in identifying a male accused of hitting two manhattan based convenience stores and racking up well over $10,000 worth of scratch off tickets.

The incident took place earlier this month on January 15th as the suspect entered a Lexington Avenue deli located near East 93rd street. He is said to have asked for a free soda in which he was denied by the store’s clerk. The male is said to have then demanded the scratch off tickets while reportedly threatening the 21 year old worker. He ultimately made off with $1,420 worth of tickets.

But it didn’t end there, as the suspected robber hit another store five days later on January 20th. He is said to have stole an entire box of scratch off tickets from the shelf at an Eighth Avenue located grocery store making his way down northbound on West Fourth Street.

Officials are requesting that anyone with knowledge surrounding this incident to please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting, downloading the NYPD Crime Stoppers mobile app, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. Spanish-speaking callers are asked to dial 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
