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.

      The video (and photos) are of the guy cashing his stolen ticket later at another location. Read the story.

      Uhhhh...it says in the story that the pictures/video were taken when the man was cashing in a ticket. Just think, all that sarcasm wasted and your cluelessness revealed because you failed to read the story.

    I hear that Christian Laettner is in need of 30 million. I would start there.

    Cavalier hatchbacks were rare in 1985 much less today. Can they not search the DMV databases for what's left of them??
