SHERIFF: Man arrested after trying to cash in stolen lottery tickets

PAMLICO COUNTY, NC (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina man has landed behind bars after deputies say he tried to cash in stolen lottery tickets.

Pamlico County Sheriff Chris Davis says Michael Winbourne was arrested last week for the January 18th break-in at the Hobucken Marina.

During the burglary cigarettes, lottery tickets, beer and other items were taken.

Davis says they traced the break-in to the Jones County man after he tried to redeem some of the stolen lottery tickets in Bridgeton and Grantsboro.

He was arrested at his home in Maysville with the help of Jones County deputies.

Winbourne is charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny after breaking and entering, and obtaining property by false pretense.

He was jailed on a $15,000 secured bond.
