47-year-old Odis Latham and 48-year-old Russell Sparks of Columbus, Mississippi showed up to the lottery headquarters and tried to turn in a falsified scratch-off ticket. Officials say it was immediately determined that the ticket was altered with winning numbers glued onto the ticket.
Scratch-off tickets have a barcode that authenticates winning tickets.
