Police say surveillance video also reveals the suspect was wearing multi-colored underwear, which was exposed at the rear waistline when he bent over. The male walked to the backroom and confronted the employee, keeping his left hand in his pocket, which made the employee concerned there may be a weapon.

The male ordered the employee to stay still, and grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash, then walked behind the counter and stole several hundred lottery tickets.
