OKLAHOMA CITY – Police say they are looking for a man who allegedly stole an entire rack of lottery tickets from a local convenience store.

On June 16, officers were called to the Circle K, located at 2101 S.W. 89th St., after learning about the theft.

According to the arrest affidavit, a man walked into the store around 5 a.m. and asked to buy 30 lottery tickets.

However, the cashier said he couldn’t process the purchase because the man was trying to use a debit card.

After leaving in a red car, the man returned a few minutes later.

Witnesses say the man walked up to the counter, grabbed two conjoined containers of lottery tickets and ran out the door.

If you have any information on the crime, call police.
