Lottery Winner Arrested for Drugs on "Lucky" Day
Accused drug dealer had winning ticket
An Indiana lotto winner was arrested on his "lucky" day on drug charges.
Are you having a great day today? Or are you having a miserable one? One Indiana man managed to have both in the same 24-hour period.
Mark Chambers, 20, was arrested by Gary police on Monday for dealing drugs, reports the Post-Tribune. When they emptied his pockets they found a lottery ticket.
A winning lottery ticket.
Worth over $2,000.
Do you think the police congratulated Chambers?
Undercover detectives reportedly bought cocaine from 41-year-old Anthony Williams. After the sale, they followed Williams as he picked up more cocaine from Chambers, police told the Post-Tribune.
Both were arrested.
When police went through Chambers' pockets, they found an Indiana "Pick Four" lottery ticket worth $2,260.
Yet, we don't think Chambers is feeling quite so lucky.
Detectives are investigating if they can seize the cash prize.
