It seemed like an awful lot of trouble to go through to get some little pasteboard squares.

An “unknown number” of California Lottery tickets are what appears to have been taken early Tuesday morning in a rooftop break-in at a supermarket in Garden Grove.

According to Sgt. Jon Wainwright of the Garden Grove Police Department, an audible alarm alerted officers to a burglary at the A1 Market, 11512 Magnolia St., at 1:58 a.m.

Arriving officers found that while the ceiling of the interior of the business had been heavily damaged, the exterior doors and windows were are secured. An air unit from the Anaheim Police Department flew over the building, and an observer in the helicopter spotted two holes in the roof of the building, with a rope from the railroad right-of-way hanging from the rooftop.

No suspects were found but the lottery tickets were missing.
