NOT AT ALL condoning what the crook did, guilty as charged (as long as there was video proof). But, what would the outcome have been if he had used money from his pocket to buy the winning tix instead of exchanging the stolen funds for the big winner? 

Hmmmmm, fine line there for sure.

    Good point. Unless they have video evidence that he actually used the same funds from the redeemed ticket then the $10,000 belongs to him. I had read that after he was arrested he made the $1,500 cash bail so what's to say he used his own money to purchase the big winner and not the proceeds from the stolen ticket.

      As the NJ Lottery slogan says," Anything can happen in NJ " and it does.
