Richmond police say surveillance video from one gas station may lead them to the people who stole from another gas station just a few miles away.
Police say the Gulf gas station on the Eastern Bypass was broken into earlier this week. Someone got in through an existing hole and got away with cash and two packages of lottery tickets.
Tuesday night a man entered the Circle K in Richmond and tried to cash four lottery tickets. Police say they were some of the same tickets that were stolen from the Gulf.
He was with two women and all three people left together after the clerk was unable to cash the tickets. Now police say this is the best lead they have to solving the burglary from earlier in the week.
Police say the three people left the Circle K in a Ford Escort ZX2.
