    Trashed lottery ticket wins finder $100,000

    By The Associated Press
    (2/18/05 - SHELBYVILLE, IN) Karrie Jeremiah pulled a discarded lottery ticket from a restaurant trash can and hit the jackpot.

    Two other people had purchased the $5 Hoosier Lottery scratch-off ticket last week at the Chaperral Cafe. When a clerk at the downtown cafe told them it wasn't the $40 winner they were hoping for, they threw it away, lottery officials said. It wasn't a $40 winner -- it was a $100,000 winner. Jeremiah said she wondered whether the numbers were completely checked before the ticket was tossed.
