A thief pressed his luck looting a load of lottery tickets from a Gulf Coast convenience store, then returned to the scene to swipe a safe.

The double-dipping was all caught on camera inside the Fort Myers store earlier this month.

The man walked in, wrestled with the lottery ticket machine, then took off with as many tickets as he could manage.

He must have been feeling lucky, because he returned in different clothing, with two targets for his second go around: the cash register and the safe.

His luck ran out there though, it turns out it was empty.

Police are hoping the public can put him in a different set of clothing - one belonging to a jail inmate.
