Bel Air couple hits twice on single lottery ticket, winning $100k

BALTIMORE — A semi-retired Bel Air couple won twice on a single lottery ticket, winning $100,000.

It all started on August 31 with the purchase of an $8 Powerball ticket at Redner’s Warehouse Markets on North Fountain Green Road.

At first, there was some confusion about how much they won, but the store clerk quickly figured it out.

“When I scanned I saw the number ‘100’ but it quickly disappeared so I thought it was $100,” the 68-year-old husband told the Maryland Lottery. “Then the clerk checked it and said it was $100,000. I was shocked!”

It turns out that the lucky ticket matched four of the five numbers, including the Power Ball itself, across two lines, which meant double the winnings.

The happily married couple, who call themselves Leather & Lace because of their love of motorbikes, said they plan to use their newfound fortune on a new home and retire in full.
