Two Kentucky men held winning lottery tickets, but it wasn't their lucky day.
The men are accused of stealing more than $10,000 in lottery tickets and were arrested after trying to cash some of the winning ones, law enforcement officials said.
Steven Mashburn, 27, of Garrison, and Glen Tackett, 24, of South Portsmouth, are charged with breaking into Busters Marathon in Garrison on Tuesday and stealing several rolls of scratch-off lottery tickets.
A call placed later Tuesday from a store in South Shore informed police that Mashburn and Tackett had tried to cash winning tickets from the stolen rolls about 8:30 a.m., the Lewis County Sheriff's Department said.
A surveillance camera at the store showed the license plate on the car the men were traveling in. Deputies located Mashburn and Tackett at Mashburn's residence later that day. Mashburn also faces drug charges after deputies discovered drugs and drug paraphernalia at his home.
