MONTGOMERY CO. – Police are searching for four suspects accused of stealing lottery tickets from a Rockville restaurant.

The investigation shows the suspects broke into a business on June 29 and stole several Maryland Lottery scratch-off tickets. The suspects entered Mike & Sons Sub Shop around 9:30 a.m. on Randolph Road through the roof.

Surveillance video from various stores captured the suspects redeeming winning tickets that were stolen. Later that day, the suspects went to two different Silver Spring 7-Elevens, a beer and wine store in Wheaton and an Exxon gas station in Wheaton to cash in their tickets.

On August 1, 2, and 4, suspects cashed in more of the stolen lottery tickets at various stores located in Montgomery County. On August 10, police say a Hispanic female suspect attempted to claim some of the stolen lottery tickets at a 7-Eleven located in Adelphi, Maryland. This last attempt to cash in the lottery tickets was declined by the store.

Police released photographs of the suspects on Tuesday and are asking for the public’s help identifying them.

Anyone who may recognize the suspects should call police at 240-773-6710. Crime Solvers are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
