Local lotto winners collect smaller prizes


N.C. Education Lottery officials say four tickets sold in North Carolina matched five of six numbers in last week's $640 million Mega Millions drawing and will collect $250,000 each.

One of those tickets was sold at the Kroger on Six Forks Road in Raleigh.

ABC11 has learned that another ticket, sold in Broadway, was won by a father and son, who will split the ticket. Lonnie L. Johnson Sr. and Lonnie L. Johnson Jr. run a local grading company in Harnett County.

After taxes, they'll each take home an estimated $85,000. They said they plan to use the cash to pay bills.

The odds of collecting $250,000 was 1 in 3.9 million. Two other winning tickets were sold in Jacksonville and Wendell. Ten other tickets sold in the state matched four numbers to collect $10,000 each.
