A trail of dropped lottery tickets led police to a suspected robber who burglarized a Tennessee gas station on early Monday.
Officers were alerted to a break-in at a Mapco gas station outside downtown Nashville at just before 2 a.m., according to WKRN. When they arrived, they noticed broken glass and lotto tickets strewn about, leading away from the station.
Police followed the trail to the woods, where they discovered a man who they say then tried to run from them, WKRN reported.
The man, who was not identified, was later taken into police custody.
