DAYTONA BEACH, FL ?- A man who won a lottery prize is now considered a thief by police officers in Daytona Beach.

Investigators say the lottery winner just couldn't get his cash fast enough.

The clerk gave the robber a nickel when the robber asked for a coin so he can scratch the lottery ticket, according to officials.

A clerk at a convenience store says when she opened her cash drawer to pay out the man's winning ticket, he helped himself by grabbing more money.

"When the clerk got ready to cash him out, she opened the cash drawer, he struggled with her and he reached in and grabbed less than 50 dollars and ran out of the store," said Daytona Beach Police spokesman Jimmie Flynt.

Surveillance video from inside the store captured the incident. A fairly clear shot of the man's face was released. Detectives hope the public will help find the man.

The robber is described as a white man in his 40s with a stocky build and reddish blond hair. He was last seen wearing a Columbia white fishing-type shirt with a University of Miami logo, a gold watch, blue jeans and dark shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Sgt. Mark Eisner 386-671-5203.

I guess he'll have enough money to be the big dog in prison.
