NORTH LAUDERDALE, Fla. – An armed robber got away this week with a bag of cash and a roll of scratch-off lottery tickets from a convenience store in North Lauderdale, authorities said.

The robbery was reported just after midnight Thursday at a Mobil gas station at 7100 Kimberly Blvd.

According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, a man asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes and then pointed a gun at the employee when the clerk tried to hand him the merchandise.

Deputies said the thief ordered the clerk to empty the register and give him a roll of scratch-off lottery tickets.

Authorities said the robber stuffed his gun into the front of his pants, because he had his hands full with the bag of cash and lottery tickets.
