Officers responded to an alarm activation at Esquire Fashion and Beauty Supply, 3250 Wrightsboro Road, about 3 a.m. and found the glass door broken and a brick inside the store.

Surveillance video showed a white man in a gray sleeveless shirt and blue jeans enter the store by smashing the glass and then leave with two columns of lottery tickets.

A store representative estimated that 388 tickets valued at $1,142 were stolen during the burglary.

"A store representative

"A store representative estimated that 388 tickets valued at $1,142 were stolen during the burglary."

And the store has a record of the last one sold. And the state has a record of every ticket that was distributed to that store. Now we wait until the dummy tries to cash one in.
