LUBBOCK, Texas — Multiple cases of someone stealing lottery tickets caught the attention of the Lubbock Police Department after several similar incidents recently.

According to one of eight police reports obtained by EverythingLubbock.com, an employee of Quick Track, 5746 82nd Street, said two suspects walked into the store at approximately 10:30 p.m. July 30.

The employee said one of the suspects called him to the back alcohol cooler to distract him while the other suspect reached across the counter and took multiple lottery tickets before putting them in her pants, the report said.

It was not until the next day that another employee realized something was wrong when she was doing inventory for the lottery tickets.
