Kentucky man arrested for cashing stolen lottery ticket

Kentucky LotteryKentucky Lottery: Kentucky man arrested for cashing stolen lottery ticket

By Kate Northrop

Louisville Metro Police arrested a man who admitted to cashing in a stolen lottery ticket.

On Dec. 28, 2013, 57 year-old Dwayne Horne walked into a BP gas station on W. Broadway in Louisville to exchange a winning lottery ticket for cash. Investigators learned that the ticket was the same one that was reported stolen at the Cecil Service Center about a mile away.

The Kentucky Lottery contacted Louisville police when they noticed the stolen lottery ticket had been redeemed. Police subsequently reviewed the store’s surveillance footage and confirmed that Horne was guilty of stealing the lottery ticket.

After he was arrested, the suspect then admitted to the police that he committed the theft.

The Cecil Service Center had reported a break-in with lottery tickets and other property stolen.

Horne was charged with first degree unlawful access to a computer and receiving stolen property. His crime is considered a Class C felony, which is normally punishable by at least 5 years but not more than 10 years of imprisonment.

          5 to 10 years..that's dumb. Give 5/10 to the pedophile who will be out in 3 months to start all over again.

          Stupid is as stupid does..but evil is as evil is allowed. Stealing isn't evil, make the punishment fit the crime.

            First off, he shouldn't have worn his 7-11 shirt while breaking and entering into another convenience store, that's just very unsportsman like and rude.

            Secondly, He shouldn't have gotten greedy. He should have just stayed at his regular job ripping off the winnings of people cashing in tickets.

            And third, I really hope that ain't my little kintucky buddy. ----> Bandit

            I'm worried sick about him.

              I have a feeling he will be dumb enough to ask the Judge if he still gets his money.

                    This illustrates that crime does not pay! I wonder if anyone is banned from playing the lottery if convicted of theft in any form against a lottery player or retailer?

                    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                          He should have played the lottery someday instead of stealing.
