Forged Lottery Ticket Earns Two a Fully Paid Jail Cell

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Two men are in custody after allegedly trying to cash a fake lottery ticket. Odis Latham and Russell Sparks made their way to the lottery office Monday with what appeared to be a winning scratch-off lottery ticket worth $100,000. Upon inspection, an employee noticed losing numbers on a $5 ticket had been replaced with winning numbers. Both men were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and counterfeiting. Mississippi began selling lottery tickets in November.
