The Holts Summit Police Department has developed several leads but so far has not made an arrest in connection with the theft of numerous Missouri Lottery tickets in January from the Kwik Run Convenience Store in Holts Summit.
Holts Summit Police Detective Mark Beardsley said he received numerous calls from citizens offering information through Callaway County Crimestoppers.
Beardsley said he now has two persons of interest he is seeking.
Earlier, Beardsley said he ruled out two other suspects because one of them was in jail at the time of the thefts and the other one does not resemble the photograph of the suspect.
Beardsley said there is no photograph of the theft of the Lottery tickets from the Kwik Run Convenience Store, 120 E. Simon Blvd. in Holts Summit.
The video of the female suspect was obtained when she attempted to redeem the stolen tickets at a Jefferson City store. The suspect also was reported to have been spotted attempting to redeem the stolen tickets in Kingdom City.
“I really appreciate the tips we are receiving from the Callaway County Crimestoppers,” Beardsley said.
Beardsley said people who know about the theft of the tickets or believe they may know the identity of the person in the photograph are urged to contact him at the Holts Summit Police Department at 573-896-4678 or contact the Callaway County Crime Stoppers at 573-592-2474.
