    Store owner accused of stealing lottery ticket

    NORTH ANDOVER -- On Monday morning last week, Elizabeth Gelarderes did exactly what she always does, stop in at Richdale Food Store on her way to work for a regular coffee and a lottery ticket. The self-described ''lottery addict" scrawled onto a ''Cash Winfall" ticket the birth dates of her two children, something she's been doing for at least 10 years.

    <table style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 50%; -moz-background-clip: initial; -moz-background-origin: initial; -moz-background-inline-policy: initial; position: relative; z-index: 1;" align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr><td width="5"></td></tr></tbody> </table> The next day, she brought the ticket in to see if she'd won. The store's owner, Patrick Simboli, 45, allegedly took the ticket, checked it, and told her that she had won $2.

    But that evening, Simboli went to a lottery office in Woburn and cashed in a winning lottery ticket with the same numbers that were on Gelarderes's card, for a $46,000 jackpot, according to North Andover police Lieutenant Paul Gallagher. Police are now pressing charges against Simboli, alleging that he stole Gelarderes's winning ticket, worth $32,000 after taxes. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Lawrence District Court.
