Romulus Postal Workers Claim Mega Millions Jackpot

ROMULUS (WWJ) – This check is not in the mail. A group of postal workers, Friday, picked up a check for $29 million, less taxes, at the state lottery offices in Lansing. 

Jose and Charlene Person told reporters they began singing  “We’re in the Money” Wednesday morning after re-checking the numbers and confirming they’d won. They’re among 13 current and retired postal workers who plan to split their half of a $93 million Mega Millions lottery prize.

The PI Gold Lottery Club has chosen to take it in one lump sum.

The two 48-year-olds work at the Romulus priority mail processing center and plan to return to work Monday.

The local winning ticket was sold at a Meijer store in Belleville. The other winning ticket was sold in Indiana.
