Police: Man steals scratch-off tickets, baby formula

Police are searching for a man who stole lottery tickets and baby products from a deli.



The suspect entered the My Family Deli near East 181st Street and Walton Avenue through the basement after midnight on May 10. Police say the man stole about 450 scratch-off tickets and eight containers of baby formula.



The deli owner says he "deactivated" the tickets, but the thief could still win if he acts fast. The owner must pay the lottery back for the stolen tickets.



Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
