According to a post on the Vacaville Police Departments Facebook page, a shopper visiting the Lucky Grocery Store on Peabody Road December 20 bought a $30 scratcher ticket in the hopes of winning extra cash for the holidays. He hit pay dirt with a ticket he thought was worth $10,000, and he shared the good news with his two roommates.

Adul Saosongyang, 35, is said to have made the switch while his roommate slept, after being told by his roomie that the scratch-off card had landed him $10,000 just before Christmas.

The victim suspected that one of his roommates must have stolen the actual winning ticket and filed a report with the police department.

On Monday, following a joint investigation of the District Lottery Office and the Vacaville Police Department, lottery's investigators invited Saosongyang to its office to collect his winnings. There he was told that the ticket was not worth $10,000 - but $10m.

Saosongyang was not able to immediately walk away with the prize money.

The lottery office didn't learn the ticket had been stolen until after it began its standard investigation for any winnings over $600.

Adul Saosongyang, 35, was arrested on January 7 for allegedly stealing a California Scratchers Lottery ticket worth $10 million dollars from his roommate. Collecting a prize of such a sum involves submitting a detailed claim form, either in person at a district office or else in the mail, according to the state lottery. Police arrested Saosongyang when he arrived.

The officials were told at the Lucky Grocery Store, where the ticket was purchased, that it might have been stolen.

The Lottery investigator began comparing notes with a Vacaville PD detective on the suspected theft.

Saosongyang was booked into Sacramento County Jail and will be transferred to the Solano County Jail later this week, Vacaville Police said. Together, they found that Saosongyang had allegedly purchased a similar ticket to his roommate's, altered it and swapped it for the winning ticket. He said he couldn't be certain that the man would receive payment.
