April 7, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a man who broke into a store at a gas station in Long Island City two weeks ago and took off with cash and scratch-offs.

The alleged burglar used a rock to smash in the glass door of an ExxonMobil located at 35-15 Greenpoint Ave. around 1 a.m. on March 27, police said.

Once inside, he grabbed $200 and an unknown number of scratch off lotto tickets. He then fled in an unknown direction, according to police.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

People are going to start getting desperate as they run out of money and food . The worst is yet to come.


What a dummy. Those scratch-offs are worthless. The NY Lottery has the serial numbers and will just cancel the tickets.

Criminals that advantage during these desperate times. Great photos of this perp. Someone will recognize him. By the way not so smart stealing scratch off tickets. They are all recorded and can be traced. Good luck trying to cash in any winners.
