2-10-14

GARFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Luck was on the side of a New Jersey man.

John Roland of Garfield bought two Jersey Cash 5 lottery tickets with the same numbers and won $292,935 with each ticket. He also matched four numbers on a third ticket, winning $515.

The Star-Ledger of Newark reports (http://bit.ly/1biWauS ) Roland told lottery officials he’ll invest most of his winnings, which total more than $586,000.

A holder of a third winning ticker from the Dec. 12 drawing, which was purchased at the Garden State Parkway service area in Lacey Township, has yet to come forward.
