He has since been released. 

RCMP was looking for two suspects after the lottery tickets were stolen from a Petro-Canada gas station in town Friday night. One man reportedly distracted the clerk, while the other made off with the goods. Which role the Fort St. John man had in the theft has not been released. 

At the time it was believed they were from out of town, as they made no effort to conceal their faces from the security cameras.
