Lotto ticket likely lost, not stolen 

A claim made to the Gustine Police Department that a winning lotto ticket was taken by a store clerk turned out to be false and was actually a lost ticket. 

On Sept. 11 the Gustine Police Department was contacted by a Gustine resident about a winning $600 winning lotto ticket. The man said he went to the Quick and Easy convenience store at 780 South Avenue to claim the prize and was given a form to fill out. 

The man told the police department he believed the clerk kept the ticket, but a later review of the surveillance video shows the clerk handing the man the winning ticket and the claim form, according to the police department.
