North Branford, Connecticut, police have arrested three men for allegedly stealing $1 million in cash from a man who hit the lottery more than 20 years ago.
Police say the North Branford resident kept his winnings in a home safe.
Police say two of the three East Haven men arrested are the grandson and son-in-law of the alleged victim.
The money was apparently taken during two thefts in November but the victim, not identified by police, didn't notice the money was missing from his safe until Jan. 15.
Those charged are 18-year-old Raffaele Iuliano Jr., 44-year-old Raffaele Iuliano Sr. and 24-year-old Joseph Bernardo.
Police say they have recovered about $219,000.
