Winona bar says hit by faux gambling inspector
Winona police say a man stole pulltab proceeds at a local bar by impersonating a state gambling inspector on Thursday.
Winona Police Deputy Chief Tom Williams says the man went into Cheater’s Bar and asked to inspect collections from the game. An employee let the man go through the pulltab boxes. Williams says the man told the employee he had to get something from his vehicle, left and never returned.
The amount of money missing has not been disclosed.
