A large quantity of lottery tickets was reported stolen in a Carbon County burglary.

State police at Lehighton said the incident occurred at the Sunoco Food Mart at 7435 Interchange Rd., Towamensing Township.

Troopers said an unknown criminal gained entry to the mart by breaking a window on the north side and climbing inside. Once inside the suspect took an entire show case of miscellaneous lottery tickets worth over $5,000. The suspect climbed back out the same window he entered, taking the show case with him. Surveillance video was dark due to the fact there were no lights on at the time, and so the suspect could not be identified.

The incident ocurred about 10:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30, troopers said. Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to call troopers at (610) 377-4270.
