Dormont police are looking for a man who allegedly stole $89 worth of lottery tickets from the Exxon On-the-Go Market on Feb. 26.
Police responded to the Exxon Market at 7:25 a.m., when employees called to report that 44 lottery tickets were missing during an inventory check.
One employee told police she looked a survellience footage from the night before and saw a man go behind the counter around 1:30 a.m. and take a number of scratch-off lottery tickets.
The man is described as Hispanic, 5'7" with a medium build, with shoulder-length black hair worn in a ponytail and brown eyes.
A clerk at the store told police he had seen the man before but did not know his name. The clerk reported that the man often is wearing a black Pirates baseball hat and flannel shirt and blue jeans. The man also reportedly has a slight accent.
The above photo was taken from survellience camera footage inside the store. If you recognize this man, Dormont police ask that you contact them at 412-473-3056.
