The Pima County Sheriff's Department seeks a man suspected of robbing a Circle K store and fleeing the scene all in about five seconds.

Sheriff's deputies said a man entered the store in the 4900 block of N. Oracle Road and stole an entire display of scratch lottery tickets from the front counter just before 11:30 p.m. on April 17.

"The Pima County Sheriff's Department is the primary investigator on this case," said Raynie Hosto, director of sales for the Arizona Lottery. "Security measures preventing stolen tickets from being redeemed are put in place once the Arizona Lottery is notified by the retailer of the theft."

Anyone with information on the suspect's identity or the incident is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
