St. Pete Man Facing Charges After Allegedly Purloining $30k in Scratch-Off Lottery Tickets

games-1363219_640.jpgA St. Petersburg man was arrested last week on suspicion of absconding with $30,000 in scratch-off lottery tickets from a local supermarket.

Investigators say Soulkhan Vorasane broke in to the store's lottery kiosk on several occasions, making out with a quantity of scratch-off tickets each time. It is unclear whether he was doing so while working for the store, but the police report indicates that he kept the tickets he allegedly stole in a cabinet in the company break room.

Vorasane allegedly began the illicit practice in February and continued through to his arrest last week. Investigators cite surveillance footage showing him stealing the tickets.

The 39-year-old native Laotian was arrested in the early hours of May 22 and booked into the Pinellas County Jail on a single count of scheming to defraud between $20,000 and $50,000 and was released a few hours later after posting a bond of $10,000. Per state records, Vorasane has several prior arrests for grand theft and retail theft.
