A burglar took more than $1,000 in lottery scratch-off tickets from a Pocket-area convenience store last month.

The man entered the closed convenience store in the 7300 block of Greenhaven Drive about 12:10 a.m. Jan. 7 and found that the lottery tickets were in a locked cabinet. He then left the business for a short time, returning with a pry bar.

With the tool, he broke the padlock on the cabinet and made off with the tickets valued at more than $1,000.

He was described as a white man in his mid- to late-20s, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with a medium build. He wore a black ski cap with the red lettering “100” and a black jacket, black shoes, green gloves and blue jeans.

He carried a black backpack and wore eyeglasses with black frames.
