Clerk sells winning ticket by mistake

Associated Press
 

BRIDGETON, N.J. – No one is complaining about a $100,000 mistake made by a southern New Jersey store clerk.

Indian Fields Market owner Domenic Galle says a man walked into the Bridgeton store and asked for a Deuces Wild scratch-off lottery ticket Monday night.

Galle says the clerk gave him an Aces High ticket instead.

The clerk chased after the man when she realized she had made a mistake. But he was gone.

Galle says the man walked in an hour later with a $100,000 winner.

The man doesn’t want his name released.
