Yup Scary

Maybe he has a forgetful memory and put them in one of his hiding places?

What?

      I have a sneaking suspicion that this store owner is a compulsive gambler and this pick 3 purchase wasn't the only bet he made that day. If he made multiple large bets that day, I could see how he could have misplaced some of his tickets.

        Wait...He lost how many tickets?? 184? Overnight?

        stack of lottery tickets

        My guess...someone stole them. Hopefully it's on the store cameras.

        The only logical scenario is that this store owner not only played Pick3 but many other games that day as well. At that rate I could see how he "misplaced" some of his tickets....plus I doubt he organized them with any paper clips.

          I think he is looking too hard. 184 tickets is a lot of paper. I hope he does find it before the 180 days expire.

          Maybe he should try hypnosis, it might help to jar his memory and take him back to where he put those little gems!

            Yup, you may have something there! and worse case scenario...someone knows his hiding places of his tickets

              Just knowing $92,000 is yours makes it hard to find something you lost. It was either in a hiding spot or a work employee stole it. hmmm I'm think he probably just hid it really well. He's got 180 to look for it though.

                columbo

                "Ma'am, just one more thing".

                In the article it say:

                He was featured in a 2007 Washington Post article that said after Aboroomi won a $100,000 Pick 3 prize, he spent $17,000 on a new diamond ring for his fiancee and made donations to local churches and homeless shelters. Less than a year earlier, he won $71,000 after buying 162 Pick 3 tickets with, that's right, the 715 number.

                The article states that this man has a fiancee back in 2007. It's possible that she could now be his wife. Is it unreasonable to think that the fiancee or wife  could have taken the lottery tickets?

                Here is another suspect I'd look at to see if he took the tickets. The article states:

                The next day, another customer showed up and told him he thought Aboroomi's numbers had come up the night before. The shopkeeper checked, and 715 indeed had been drawn. In that order. With each ticket worth $500, that was a $92,000 windfall.

                So we have a customer who knows he plays those 7-1-5 numbers. Could he have taken the lottery tickets? 

                Were there employees working that day who could have taken the lottery tickets?

                Todd, please keep us posted on this one! Wink

                        I Agree! and he probably had several other stacks of tickets from other numbers and other days.

                          Imagine if he had spent $1,000.00 that day on Cash-3 with his numbers? That's over $500K. To lose that kind of payout would drive a person insane.

                            The story said he printed out 184 tickets and stopped only when customers came in, could someone also have played lottery and he mistakely gave them some of his tickets when he gave them their tickets?

                              Sure, but it's unlikely that customer could cash them without being found out.  Even if he just cashed one at different grocery stores ever month, the lottery would know where the tickets were printed, and they'd check the security tape to try to identify the person cashing them.

                              If your scenario did happen, the smart thing would be for that customer to come forward and return them, get the money he spent back, and hope for a nice little reward.
