City man wins $9K in lottery

January 28, 2009

BALTIMORE - Jarelle Cutler of Hagerstown kicked off the Chinese New Year by winning $9,000 on a Year of the Ox scratch-off ticket.

Cutler, 20, had just finished his early morning shift cooking breakfast for a Hagerstown restaurant. On his drive home, he stopped at the Sheetz store at 1396 S. Potomac St. to buy lottery tickets.

"I purchased two scratch-offs, a $1 ticket and a $2 Year of the Ox. The first one didn't win anything, but when I scratched the second one I hit it big," said Cutler.

He scanned the ticket at several stores to confirm the win. "They said, 'We can't cash this here. You're a big winner,'" he said. "That's when I knew I'm in the money!"

The largest prize Cutler has ever won before was $20. He said he might purchase a car or truck with his winnings.

This is the second big Maryland Lottery win for a Hagerstown resident within a week. Last Thursday, Jamie Davis won the $30,000 top prize on a Blackout Bingo scratch-off ticket.

The winning Year of the Ox ticket was purchased at the Sheetz convenience store, located at 1396 South Potomac Street in Hagerstown.
