Perhaps, if Lady Luck is not working in your favour, you have to push her to do it? This must have been the motto of lottery ticket robbers in Songes, Rodrigues. A shop owner, an inhabitant of Ile-Michel, who is also a member of the Regional Assembly, stated that a large number of tickets have disappeared from the 29th of November to the 1st of December.
The owner was away from his shop for a while. He related that the number of stolen tickets is tantamount to Rs 20 700.
Upon discovering the loss, he reported the case to the police of Rivière-Coco. The thieves are said to have entered the shop by breaking in through a wooden window pane.
No suspect has been mentioned yet.
