All James Shackelford wanted was a cup of coffee.
That’s why the Stafford man stopped at the Wawa at 275 Butler Road in Stafford. When he got his coffee, he had a few bucks left over, so he bought a Cash Money ticket from the Virginia Lottery, according to a news release.
“I was all shook up!” he told lottery officials as he claimed his prize.
Shackelford is the third person to claim the top prize in the Cash Money game, leaving one $150,000 ticket unclaimed.
Shackelford, who works as a plumber, said he has no immediate plans for his winnings, but he may do some traveling.
