Bethlehem powerball winner

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A group of Bethlehem employees are feelin' lucky after a $1 million lottery win.

Ten members of the city's parks and public property department purchased the winning Powerball ticket from the Stefko Mini Mart on Stefko Boulevard.

The ticket matched all five white balls from Wednesday night's drawing, but it did not match the red Powerball.

The group will split the $1 million prize 10 ways, less 25 percent federal withholding.

The Stefko Mini Mart will get $5,000 for selling the ticket.

Meanwhile, Wednesday night's $425 million Powerball jackpot was won by a single ticket purchased in California.
