The Bay County Sheriff’s Office has released the name and photo of the man they believe stole more than 70 scratch-off lottery tickets.
The Sheriff’s Office released surveillance photos of a man wanted for stealing lottery tickets from the Edgewater Food Mart (6924 Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach) on August 11.
After receiving many tips, deputies announced Monday they have the man in the surveillance photos as 31-year-old Scott T. McAlister of Bayou George. Investigators say McAlister has gained a significant amount of weight since the mug shot above was taken.
Anyone with information on the location of McAlister is asked to contact the Bay County Sheriff’s Office at 850-747-4700 or Crime Stoppers at 850-785-TIPS.
