Luck be a Lady
The money from a winning lottery ticket that was shoplifted by a Swedish teenager will be given away to youth groups near the store it was stolen from.
Svenska Spel, which runs government lotteries here in Sweden, said the US$106,000 bounty from the ticket will be divided into scholarships. The decision was made in agreement with the store’s manager who had been in an ownership dispute with Svenska Spel ever since the scrape-off ticket was snatched from his store.
The lucky ticket came back into his possession after he spotted the shoplifting teen on security cameras, and recognized the boy.
