WINTER HAVEN, Florida, March 7 - A local man was arrested recently after he took a winning scratch-off lottery ticket back to the store from which he had stolen it a day earlier, the Associated Press reports.
The man, twenty-two, stole seventy dollars worth of tickets from a Circle K store on a Sunday. The next day, he returned to the store to collect fifty dollars, a prize from one of the tickets.
The fast-thinking clerk wrote down the man's drivers license information and then called police. Deputies arrested the man, who will be charged with dimwittedness and made to sit in the corner without his supper.
