UPS DRIVER CAPTURES $100,000 IN POWERBALL
A St. Louis United Parcel Service driver drove home a $100,000 Powerball prize from the April 27 drawing. Randall "Randy" Baker (63134*), 42, said he and his wife plan to use the windfall to buy a new house.
"It was the ticket to move," he told Lottery officials when he claimed his prize on Monday.
Baker purchased his winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 4300 Woodson in Woodson Terrace. He let the computer pick the combination of numbers on his winning ticket. Those numbers were: 1, 9, 12, 18 and 33.
To date, 584 Powerball tickets sold in Missouri have matched all five white-ball numbers drawn to win the $100,000 prize.
