Lottery seeks vending machine theft suspects
Submitted By Russ Lopez
Investigators from the California Lottery are asking for the publicÕs help in locating suspects who broke into a Lucky grocery store in Fremont on March 1, and made off with a Scratchers vending machine.
The thieves broke into the store, which is located on the 40000 block of Mission Boulevard, about 3 a.m. on Saturday, March 1. Police located the vending machine a few hours later just a couple blocks from the store location. Most of the cash had already been removed from the machine before the theft and Fremont police did recover most of the stolen tickets. Still, as a precaution the Lottery has ÒflaggedÓ all suspected ticket numbers that may have been stolen.
All Lottery tickets are traceable and as soon as the suspects attempt to cash any winning tickets in their possession, Lottery investigators will immediately know their location. The Lottery is working with the Fremont Police Department on this case.
If you have information that could lead to the arrest of the suspect in the photo, Lottery investigators ask that you call them at 1-800-LOTTERY and select option 4 to speak with an investigator.
