Man Goes Dumpster Diving For Winning Lottery Ticket

Posted Updated

WILSON, N.C. — A Wilson man went from trash to cash this week, spending three hours in a Dumpster to find a winning lottery ticket.

Wallace Woodard bought three Winter Wonderland tickets, but he threw them away when he thought he lost.

A few days later, Woodard bought a couple more tickets and realized as he read the fine print that one of his trashed tickets actually was a $100,000 winner.

He searched through a Dumpster at work and found the winning ticket after three hours.
