In the news today:

Thieves Hoping To Get "lucky" At Lucky's.

California lottery fans are getting tired of losing. Some players are actually taking the matter into their own hands ...and right out the back door! These guys took the "self service machine" to a whole new level.

Aww..I miss Lucky's. I grew up in that store!

I always shopped at Safeway, across the bay in Mountain View!!!! They will be caught.

    More like losing there brains.  Losing the lottery, no.  They won powerball twice in a row, the 400 mil and then a 60 mil on march 1st.  It's apparent the lottery isn't random, and has quite a bias.

    Seeing as California has a population of over 38,000,000 compared to Wisconsin's almost 6 million it appears the bias is only in the amount of people,hence the ticket buyers.

      Wish I could see the looks on their faces when they try to collect on winning tickets (If they managed to break the machine open) and instead they end up getting cuffs thrown on them and thrown into jail!!!!

        Looks like the same fat guy in the four pictures. May since he/she is not so bright, he/she had to wear bright long sleeve clothing, during a burglary, to compensate  for the obvious lack of grey matter. Could be an inside job for all we know.

          This doesn't surprise me. Here in Louisiana, video poker was legalized back in the 1990s and many bars and restaurants installed poker machines. A new crime was breaking into these businesses after closing and taking the cash from the machines. Those machines often have a lot of money in them so it's very tempting. I don't know if anyone has ever actually stolen a poker machine, but many have been broken into around the state.

          Louisiana hasn't had lottery vending machines for all that long and there aren't many of them around the state. Oddly enough, there's only one here in Baton Rouge and we're the state capitol and lottery headquarters. When I go to the store that has it, it seems like nobody is ever using it. For all I know, I might be the only one.
