Florida Man Herbert McClellan Awarded Donkey Of The Day

Florida Man Herbert McClellan Awarded Donkey Of The Day

If you’re going to steal lottery tickets, don’t try to cash them at the same place you took them.

It’s that sort of mentality that police say landed a man named Herbert in jail.

You see, officers say Herbert McClellan grabbed 13 scratch-off tickets from the Speedway convenience store at 32 Bay Esplanade in Clearwater Beach.

According to police, when McClellan realized one of them was a $30 winner, he went back to the same store to cash it. Store workers weren’t thrilled and called 911. That’s when police showed up and put Mr. McClellan in handcuffs.

He’s been charged with petit theft and dealing in stolen property.

“It’s safe to say it was not his lucky day,” the Clearwater Police Department said.
