A hunt for a bit of luck didn’t turn out well for a 22-year-old man in the northern Polish town of Iława.
On one sunny day, a young man from the Polish town of Iława entered a grocery store and asked the clerk to bring him alcohol.
When she left for the goods, he noticed a plastic rack packed with scratch-off tickets. He grabbed it and left the store immediately, probably full of hopes for a better life.
But his luck didn’t last too long after all. The clerk called the police that managed to find the thief. Even though he had enough time to go through every single scratchcard, he found out that none of them was a winning one.
According to Polsat News, there were precisely 591 scratch tickets on the stand and the damage done was worth around the devilish $666.
“The police interrogated the man and informed him about the charges. He admitted that he stole the tickets. The criminal code states that the penalty for theft can be up to five years in prison,” the police reported.

Similarly to the Czech Republic, Poland is a country of limitless opportunities.
