Morristown man wins $150K, gives store clerk $5,000

It's not unusual for someone to say if they have a lottery winning they will share some of the wealth with family or friends. It's not likely many people would say that to a stranger, then follow through with it. That's what happened in Morristown last week, though.

According to a report by the Morristown Citizen-Tribune about 8:30 p.m. last Thursday, 21-year-old Jordan Bible of Talbott strolled into Deb's Market and Deli on Kidwells Ridge Road on the west side of Morristown and got some drinks out of the cooler. At the counter, he asked the clerk, 23-year-old Adam Moles, for a couple of lottery tickets for the Giant Jumbo Bucks scratch off game. The big prize in the game is $150,000.

The two tickets were duds, but Bible said he'd try a couple of more.

"If I win $150,000 I'll give you $5,000 of it," Bible told Moles as he started scratching the numbers on the third ticket.

"It was the first time I ever seen him in my life," Moles said.

At first, neither could quite believe it when Bible scratched off $150,000.
