Cleveland family claims $1M Powerball prize

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - In the record-breaking $1.6B Powerball jackpot there were three winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.

In Ohio there were three winning tickets sold for $1M. Those tickets were sold in downtown Cleveland, Toledo and Centerville.

A Cleveland-area family of four has claimed their prize in the Jan. 13 drawing. They purchased their ticket from Erieview Towers News.

The winners are Delua Brewer, Cleveland; Talisha Jacobs, Cleveland; Jessica Ward-Harvey, Cleveland; and Justin Ward, South Euclid.

The ticket holders matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number, to win the $1-million prize.

The four will split $710,000 after required federal and state tax withholdings totaling 29 percent. They are the second of three $1-million ticket holders in the Jan. 13 Powerball drawing.

The four said they will use the money to pay bills and likely purchase a few reliable cars.

A second $1-million winning ticket from that drawing was claimed in Toledo. The Centerville remains unclaimed.

Each of these retailers receives a $1,000 sales bonus.
