Lottery Burglar's Luck Still Hasn't Run Out
The NYPD's now asking for the public's help in finding a burglar who busted through the front door of Nature's Chemist, 23-92 21st Street in Astoria, at about 12:15 a.m. on Friday, January 7, and stole a passel of lottery tickets. The guy was captured on video at another store turning in some of those tickets. Cameras show a guy wearing a red sweatshirt with the New York Giants' logo on its chest, black skull hat, and black gloves. It's not known whether he had any winning tickets.
