A California man was arrested after replacing his roommate’s winning lottery ticket with a fake according to Police.

First of all, I would've NEVERRRRRR told my room mate I hit the lottery that big, nor would I have left it anywhere in the house.

According to police, Adul Saosongyang, 35, stole his roommate’s winning $30 scratch-off ticket and swapped it with a different one.      

The next day Saosongyang attempted to claim the winning $10 million ticket, police said.  Lottery officials learned the ticket was stolen after standard investigation for any lottery winnings over $600.  Lottery officials then invited Saosongyang to its office under the premise of awarding the prize. Police arrested Saosongyang when he arrived, and was charged with grand theft and held at the Sacramento County Jail.
