Police arrest lottery ticket – also bag a nark pusher as accomplice

Imagine this, you just won a tidy little jackpot from a lottery and then you have the ticket taken away… WHY?

You bought the ticket with proceeds from an illegal drugs sale! CNN has more on the weird tragicomedy as it happened –

Michael David, who had been staying at a motel, sold four 10-milligram methadone pills for $15 each last week, Police Chief [of Ellsworth, Maine] John Deleo said.

He then went to a convenience store and bought lottery tickets and other merchandise and went back to his motel room, where he was busted.

Now a court must decide if the ticket is a ticket or a part of the transaction! The 46 year old is still in custody and is obviously not available for comment…

He took a gamble and lost, huh?
