LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they have arrested a man after he cashed a lottery ticket that had been reported stolen.

According to an arrest warrant, it happened Dec. 28, 2013. That's when police say 57-year-old Dwayne Horne walked into the BP gas station at the corner of 15th St. and W. Broadway, and cashed a lottery ticket.

What investigators learned, according to the arrest warrant, was that the lottery ticket had been stolen from the Cecil Service Center at the corner of S. 9th St. and W. Liberty St. Police say someone broke into the service center and stolen the lottery tickets.

Shortly after Horne cashed the lottery ticket, police say, the Kentucky Lottery contacted police to say the ticket had been stolen.

Police say they soon discovered that the theft at the Cecil Service Center occurred shortly before the stolen lottery ticket was cashed at the BP gas station.

A warrant was issued for Horne's arrest on Jan. 21, and he was taken into custody later that day. He is charged with unlawful access to a computer and receipt of stolen property, according to an arrest report.
