In the Bronx, New York, a cab driver with very bad financial problems stole his friend’s Powerball ticket after he discovered it was worth $50,000. The friend then tried to make it seem like the ticket was his own when trying to claim the winnings. 

The thief’s name is Segura Rubelin, and his pal who he stole the Powerball ticket from, Victor Castillo, didn’t win the $1.6 billion jackpot on the 13th of January. He just won a lovely consolations prize to the tune of $50,000. When the friend found out about Victor’s win, he snatched the ticket right out of his very own hand and made off with it. 

To make matters worse, the backstabbing friend then ran off with Victor’s winning ticket to the place where he bought it from and came back with another winning ticket, but it was only worth a mere $4. 

One can only imagine how distraught Victor must have been, as well as in shock after what his friend had just done to him. Greed can turn people into monsters. “He was my friend, but he is no longer. We were like brothers. He betrayed me. I’m still in shock,” said Victor. 

Victor is also an NYC cab driver and he joined Segura and a few other drivers at a Diner the day after the big draw had happened. It was there that he checked his winning Powerball numbers. 

“When I matched three, I said I was winning. That’s when he snatched it from my hand and ran to the bodega. He came back and threw me a ticket that only won $4. He was just trying to fool me. I know the numbers I played. I knew I won,” explained Victor. 

Bodega

The bodega workers also knew that those were the numbers Victor played. They knew him, and they got it all on video – then shared the evidence with the police. 

“We saw everything on the videotape,” said Wagner Cruceta, the manager of the Bronx bodega. “Victor bought the ticket. The other guy came to check it but then left. It wasn’t nice.” After the thief left the Diner with the winning ticket, Victor tried to track him down at his mom’s house. He was staying there at the time. 

According to Victor, Segura didn’t come home. What Segura didn’t realise, is that Victor actually had the receipt that proved he bought the winning ticket. “I then called the cops,” said Victor. 

After an investigation took place, Segura was found guilty, arrested, and charged with grand larceny. 

The thief’s family say that he was behind on rent for a Washington heights apartment where he had three kids and a wife. 

“We’ve been waiting for him to pay the rent we owe,” said the kids’ grandmother. “If he would have had the money, he would have paid it. He’s always helped with the rent,” she added. 

His plans for escaping to the Dominican Republic were shortly discovered. The investigation is still ongoing and state lottery spokeswoman, Carolyn Hapeman, warned lottery players to be extremely careful with their lottery tickets. “We encourage people to sign the tickets upon receipt,” she says.
