Vacaville: Roommate Busted For Stealing Scratcher Lottery Ticket Worth $10M

Man 'stole friend's California man arrested for stealing roommate's $10m lottery ticket

A ticket worth an incredible $10 million!

That same day, Adul Saosongyang, the now-devastated man's roommate, made the same trip to the Lottery District Office, hoping to collect the $10,000.

But the winning ticket wasn't worth a meager US$10,000, the roommate was told. According to investigators, he was not only told that his ticket was not a victor, but also that it had been altered.

Northern California-based Adul Saosongyang became greedy when his roommate came home on December 20 and shared the news that a $30 scratch-off lottery ticket he'd bought in a local grocery store turned out to be a winning ticket.

After watching CCTV footage from the store where the tickets were purchased, police and lottery investigators concluded that Saosongyang had purchased a second ticket after finding out about the win, and then swapped it with his roommate's while he was asleep.

Best case scenario, Vacaville Police Department spokesman, Lt. Chris Polen told NPR, the part-time restaurant worker figured any winnings above the cost would put a little extra cash in his pockets over the holidays.

The lucky victor believed his prize was only in the thousands (AUD$14,000), according to a Vacaville Police Department Facebook post.

"Immediately sign the back of Lottery tickets in ink; put them in a secure place you will remember; and, visit one of nine Lottery district offices throughout the state to begin the claims process", the statement advised.

The officials were told at the Lucky Grocery Store, where the ticket was purchased, that it might have been stolen.

The lottery investigator teamed up with a Vacaville detective to get to the bottom of things.

Saosongyang was charged with grand theft and held at the Sacramento County Jail.

They determined that Saosangyang had, in fact, bought another ticket, altered it, then switched it for his roommate's winning ticket - all while believing it worth a fraction of what it actually was.

He remains jailed and it's unclear if he has an attorney.

"Although, I'm sure everything will work out in the end", he told the newspaper.
