Winona bar says hit by faux gambling inspector

WINONA, Minn. (AP) - Police in Winona say they're investigating a tavern's report that a man made off with pulltab proceeds by impersonating a state gambling inspector.

Deputy Chief Tom Williams says the man went into Cheater's Bar on Thursday and asked to inspect collections from the game.

Williams says a bar employee let the man go through the pulltab boxes. After a while, the man said he had to get something from his vehicle and left.

Williams says the man never returned. The amount of missing money hasn't been disclosed.
