According to the arrest report, ASO said Christopher Lamar Moore Jr, 22, was seen multiple times on surveillance video stealing scratch-off lotto tickets at the Circle K on Northwest 39th Avenue while the clerk was in the back.

The report said Moore was dating one of the store clerks and would often sit in the store for her entire shift. The clerk said there were multiple times where Moore would be left alone at the front of the store. She told deputies she never saw Moore with lotto tickets.

Moore was charged with grand theft and was booked at the Alachua County Jail with bond set at $5000.
