Police: Father-and-son deli workers on NY's Long Island stole customer's $1M lottery ticket

Police on New York's Long Island say a deli owner and his son are under arrest for scamming a customer out of a $1 million lottery ticket.

Nassau County police say a 34-year-old man bought the ticket Thursday, scratched it off and saw that he was a winner.

Authorities say he then handed it to 26-year-old Karim Jaghab to collect his winnings.

Police say the ticket was worth $1 million, but Jaghab gave the man $1,000 in cash and kept the ticket.

The customer went back Friday. Police say Jaghab and his 57-year-old father Nabil Jaghab tried to give him $10,000.

The Jaghabs were arraigned Saturday on grand larceny charges. According to Newsday, their attorney said it was a simple mistake on a payout on a lottery machine.
