In the land of the dumbasses, the last one smiling gets arrested
Boston Police report this guy went up to another guy on Guest Street in Brighton - around 5:45 a.m. last Thursday - told him he has this $1,000 lottery ticket but because he needs money now, he was willing to sell it for just $500.
The second guy said sure, but only if he could take the first guy's picture, just in case, you know, the ticket turns out not to be real. Which police say is just what happened. So now the second guy is out $500 but at least he has the guy's picture, which he turned over to police, who have issued a BOLO for the guy, last seen driving a red Camry, plate number 758 GN4.
