No shoes, no service, no matter. State police said a barefoot man didn't wait for a western Pennsylvania convenience store to open. Instead he smashed the glass door and entered early Wednesday, stealing a large number of scratch-off state lottery tickets.

Trooper Michael Duddy said the suspect may have cuts on his feet from walking on broken glass.

The burglary happened about 3:15 a.m. at the Vennards Crossroads store in White Township, about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Police said surveillance video shows the man is likely 45 to 55 years old. He has brown hair and was wearing a dark blue sweat shirt, blue jeans and a blue-and-white ball cap.
