Around 2:30 on Sunday, Grover Dake stopped in to the Stewarts in Rexford (Clifton Park). Rather than try his luck in the Mega Millions he decided to grab some cash out of the register and make a run for it. A customer wound up tackling him in the parking lot and holding him until police arrived.
The twist in this story is Grover's last name, Dake. Stewarts Shops is owned by Bill & Susan Dake. The Times Union confirmed he is in fact a distant relative of the owners.
Nice beard too.
