LODI, N.J. – An 18-year-old Lodi man was busted after he tried selling lottery tickets on the street that he’d stolen from a local deli, authorities said Wednesday.

Lodi police detectives and officers teamed up to arrest Dylan Nieves after the overnight break-in Tuesday at the Charles Street deli on Passaic Avenue, Lt. Robert Salerno said.

Also taken in the burglary were cash and cigarettes, he said.

Around 11 a.m, a trio of officers headed to the 100 block of Main Street on a report that someone was selling loose lottery tickets on the street.

Seeing them, Nieves took off on a bicycle, Salerno said.

Officers Javier Hernandez and Miguel Perez quickly chased him down and subdued Nieves after a struggle.

Nieves was charged with burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer.

A judge ordered him detained in the Bergen County Jail pending a detention hearing.
