When deputies arrived, they found a front glass window kicked out and discovered someone stole a rack full of Lottery tickets from inside. After reviewing video surveillance, deputies recognized Hernandez committing the burglary and loading the rack of stolen lottery tickets into the victim's stolen vehicle. Deputies responded to the residence, located the stolen vehicle and arrested Hernandez inside without incident. The stolen lottery tickets were recovered.

Hernandez was booked into Central Detention Center on multiple felony charges.
