Winning Lotto tickets are lost, then found.

Local News

Mike Weirsky’s life has changed forever and it almost didn’t happen. He bought two Mega Millions Jackpot tickets last Thursday morning at a New Jersey convenince store, but left them at the store by accident.He went back to the store on Friday before the Lotto drawing. 

The tickets were there. 
Some good samaritan found them and turned them in to the clerk.

Weirsky says he was paying too much attention to his cell phone. He put the tickets down to put his money away and just walked away.

The store that sold the winning ticket gets a share. That retailer received a $30,000 bonus check. Many are asking if the good samaritan will get a portion of the money from Weirsky.
