Two men in Mississippi were arrested for allegedly attempting to cash fake scratch-off lottery tickets worth $100,000.
Odis Latham and Russell Sparks visited the Mississippi Lottery Corporation headquarters in Flowood on Monday with a lottery ticket purportedly worth $100,000, Flowood Police said in a statement. The ticket had been signed and was presented to the commission for payment, the police statement said.
Lottery officials, who reported that the winning numbers had been superglued onto the ticket, reached out to police. The two men accused of forgery were taken into police custody and are being held in the Rankin County Jail, according to a police statement.
