The two Mississippi men most likely used superglue to attach the winning numbers to the lottery ticket and try to cash it out for $ 100.

Flowood City Police Department told CNN that the men signed the ticket and presented it to the Mississippi Lottery Corporation. While the representatives of the lottery realized that this was a fake, and called the authorities.

Local media published pictures of a fake ticket, on which an inconspicuous strip was glued with "winning numbers" located in the center. The ticket looked like a real one.

47-year-old Odis Latham and 48-year-old Russell Sparks were arrested, charged with conspiracy to commit a serious crime and falsify a tool to receive funds worth more than $ 1000. Latham, among other things, has been charged with false identity.

Media reported that both men were due to appear on trial on January 7, but there is no evidence of a decision yet.
