Police seek impostor who claimed Pa. club's prize

State police in northwestern Pennsylvania are searching for a jackpot impostor.

Police say someone pretended to be another man when he collected the $750 daily jackpot at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club in Corry last week.

The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/otvGfe ) reports club officials discovered they had been duped on Monday when 67-year-old Malcolm Johnson came to the club to collect his winnings from Friday's drawing.

That's when club officials told Johnson that another man using his name, address and Social Security number had come to the club last week and signed to collect the jackpot.

Police say the real Johnson has gray hair, glasses and walks without assistance. The impostor has dark hair, no glasses and uses a cane.
