OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police said a suspect in a lottery ticket heist tried to cash in on his crime.

A man robbed a Conoco at N.W. 23rd Street and N. Portland Avenue on August 11. Police said the suspect stole cash and lottery tickets.

A few days later, a man walked into another convenience store in northwest Oklahoma City and attempted to redeem some of the lottery tickets stolen from the Conoco station. Surveillance cameras captured video of the man as he walked into the store.

Police have released a photo of the suspect. They're hoping the public can help identify him.

If you know the man or have any information about the robbery, call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
