The owners of this car arrived to find that their car had been broken into but all the thief found to steal was a cheap pair of sunglasses. Unluckily for him, he missed the real money that was staring him right in the face.
The couple had bought a Powerball ticket earlier in the year but didn’t win anything at the time. They found the ticket and decided to check it again just in case and learned it was worth $1million as a winner in the “second chance prize”. The ticket had been lying in the car when it was burgled but the thief missed it completely.
The Seattle Imam's store that sold the ticket will receive a $10,000 selling bonus, the lottery said. The burglar, meanwhile, will have to make do with a pair of used sunglasses.
