CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Lottery Ticket Thief Nabbed

A man who was captured on camera cashing in stolen lottery tickets has been busted.

Two weeks ago Greenville police released photos of the man who is accused of stealing $350 worth of tickets last month from the Trade Mart on North Greene Street. The photos were from the Sheetz just hours after the break-in as the man cashed in the winning tickets.

A CrimeStoppers tip led police to Bobby Ray Grizzard of Greenville. The 40-year-old man is charged with the February 2nd break-in and theft of the lottery tickets. He's being held in the Beaufort County jail.
