“This is the first time this has happened to us but the computer systems we have developed have worked perfectly”. This was told to Adnkronos by the general director of the Customs and Monopoly Agency Marcello Minenna about the daring story of the Naples tobacconist accused of stealing the ‘Scratch and Win’ ticket worth half a million euros from the winning customer, running away away by scooter and stopped today at Fiumicino airport. He was ready to fly to Fuerteventura without, however, carrying the ticket in his suitcase which has not yet been found. Technology helped find the fugitive. “We know what the coupon is (the payment of the winnings, of course, has been suspended) thanks to the fact that the husband of the tobacconist, who holds the license, used a mobile phone to check the lucky ticket three times. therefore, it is possible to trace the mobile phone and the movements of the mobile phone and its owner as far as Fiumicino. For this reason there was an important collaboration between the carabinieri, the investigations office of the Customs and Monopoly Agency and the border police . “With us everything is registered, monitored on our computer systems, so it is important that the Game is legal. It was thus that we understood what was happening “. The coupon, however, has not yet been found.” When we have to retrieve the ticket, it will be my responsibility to return it to the rightful owner “adds the director Minenna who says” certain that the story will have a happy ending “. If he does not find himself, explains Minenna,” then the ways of litigation will be explored “, but” I am optimistic since the Carabinieri of Naples are operating with a great sense of duty “. At the moment” Tobacconist’s license has been suspended “. As for the owner,” the lady will have to prove her complete strangeness since it was her husband who committed the theft and, if in court it is proved that she has nothing to do with it, on our part balanced and objective acts will be perfected “. by Chiara Moretti
