A Swanton man who read a news report about unclaimed Megabucks winnings discovered he had one of the $10,000 tickets in his wallet, Vermont Lottery officials said.
Jon Trahan purchased several tickets in February at the Swanton Short Stop but then lost his wallet containing the tickets during an out-of-state trip, said Lottery officials.
When police returned the wallet, the cash was missing, but the lottery tickets were still there.
Trahan recently checked his tickets and found one of the $10,000 winners.
He said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.
