A wise guy decided to press his luck at a convenience store in Fort Myers stealing a load of lottery tickets.

The man wrestled with the lottery ticket machine, then swiped as many lottery tickets as he could and ran off.

He was caught on camera inside the Fort Myers store earlier this month.

He confidently returned to the store a second time after changing his clothes to steal the safe and cash register, with two targets and hopes on scoring again.

This time he was out of luck because it was empty.

He’ll be wearing a bright orange jumpsuit for a while, so no need for him to worry about changing clothes.
