WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A Waynesboro man has claimed a Powerball ticket that netted him $750,000, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials.

Jeffrey Piper brought a winning ticket from the April 14 drawing to lottery headquarters near Harrisburg, Pa., on Monday, lottery spokeswoman Lauren Piccolo said Tuesday.

Piper will receive a $750,000 lump-sum payment in four to six weeks, Piccolo said. The total prize of $1 million in winnings was subject to 25 percent federal withholdings, she said.

A woman who answered the phone at a Waynesboro listing for Piper declined to comment.

A second ticket from the same drawing won $1 million. That ticket, which has not been claimed, was sold in Montgomery County, Pa.

Piper bought his ticket at the Rutter’s Farm Store at 141 S. Potomac St. The winning ticket correctly matched all five white balls — 14, 15, 16, 19 and 24 — but not the red Powerball, 02.

Each retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the $1 million winning tickets from the April 14 drawing, according to a news release.
