The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department is asking for your help in identifying the person in this surveillance video. Detective Dean Baker reports that the suspect told the victim that he has won a substantial amount of money in a California lottery game. Suspect further tells the victim that he needs money for a family medical emergency or hardship and would sell the ticket to the victim at a discount. The suspect then tells the victim that he is in this country illegally and thus cannot claim the winnings. The suspect urged the victim to call the number on the back of the ticket, supposedly to the California Lottery Commission, and confirms the winning numbers. Unbeknownst to the victim, the number on the fake ticket belongs to one of the suspect’s associates. The suspect’s associate confirms the winning numbers and the victim believes they are buying a winning lottery ticket at a substantial discount. The suspect accompanies the victim to the bank, and the victim willingly handed over the agreed to sum for the lottery ticket. Please call the Fugitive Watch Hot Line at 1- 800-9-CAUGHT if you know the name of this man.

Please make sure you tell all your elderly spanish speaking family memebers to keep an eye out for them. I hope they get caught soon.
