ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida authorities say a smash-and-grab robber made-off with more than $10,000 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets after he broke into a convenience story by head-butting his way through the glass front door.
Surveillance video captured the hooded suspect in a crouch barreling headfirst into the Sunshine Food Mart in Orlando early Thursday as glass shatters around him onto the floor.
WESH-TV in Orlando reported that the hard-headed burglar ransacked racks of Florida Lottery scratch-off tickets and then left the same way he came in.
But the thief's dreams of lottery riches were quickly foiled. Lottery officials canceled the stolen tickets before they could be cashed-in by someone claiming to be the lucky winner.
Cops were still looking for a suspect Saturday.
