Thief steals scratch-off tickets from Spring store

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for a thief who they say swiped an entire lotto display from  a store in Spring.

Surveillance video from inside MVS Liquor shows the thief following the owner to the register. As soon as the owner turns his back to get around the counter, the thief reaches over, grabs all  the store’s scratch-offs and then runs out the front door.

Deputies did not release a name, but believe that they may know who’s behind the crime.
