    $5,000 Lottery Ticket Snatched By Bicyclist

    Mar. 22 - BCN - A Scotts Valley woman received an unpleasant surprise Wednesday when a winning lottery ticket she stated to be worth $5,000 was suddenly snatched from her hands by a passing bicyclist.

    The incident occurred at around 7:40 p.m. just after the woman had stopped outside her parked car to scratch several lottery tickets purchased from a Safeway grocery store located at 253 Mt. Herman Road, Scotts Valley police Officer David Ball said.

    When the woman realized she was holding a $5,000 winning "Cherry Tripler" ticket in her hands, she raised the ticket above her head, exclaiming, "I won."

    Ball reports that at that moment a man with shoulder-length blond hair rode past the woman on a rust colored cruiser-style bicycle, plucked the ticket from her outstretched hand and sped away.

    Police say the suspect, described as an approximately 45-year-old white male standing about six feet tall, was last seen riding away from the parking lot wearing tan khaki pants and a red fleece jacket.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Scotts Valley Police Department at (831) 440-5670

    I knew they were a little shifty, or in the case of the cruiser rider, shiftless.

    It wasn't me.

    However, I have often wanted to pull the very same stunt on Parking Meter Cops as they are in the middle of writing a ticket. Just snatch the ticket book from their hand as I zoom past. Then disappear with a maniacal laugh.
