Two suspects used a van to rip off the doors of a liquor store early Monday morning to steal lottery tickets, Garden Grove police reported.
The suspects used a Chevrolet Astro van and a rope to force open the doors of Hanshaw Liquors at 10971 Westminster Ave. about 4:45 a.m., according to Garden Grove police Lt. Bob Bogue.
The burglars took several thousand California Scratchers tickets in the store, Bogue said.
Some of the winning tickets were claimed at 8 a.m. at convenience stores in Compton and Lynwood, Bogue said.
