SEARCY, Ark. (AP) — Two more entities are making claims to ownership of a $1 million Arkansas lottery ticket, over which two people are already suing each other in White County.
Beebe resident Sharon Jones claimed the ticket that she got out of a pile of discarded scratch tickets at Super 1 Stop in Beebe on July 15. Lisa Petriches, who manages the store, filed the original suit against Jones, claiming Jones wrongly took the partially-scratched ticket from her. On Monday, a judge added to the suit Sharon Jones, who claims to be the original purchaser of the ticket.
The Daily Citizen reports (http://is.gd/75OAV3 ) the corporation that owns the store, Summer One LLC, is also now part of the suit.
Hughes has set another hearing for March 5 at the courthouse in Searcy.
