Brooklyn Park soldier has won last night's $6 million Maryland Lotto drawing.
Lottery spokesman Carroll H. Hynson Jr. said Sgt. Frances K. Rogers, 38, who serves with a recruitment unit at Fort Meade, purchased the winning ticket. She said she will share her winnings with a close friend, Sharon Taylor, 41, of Severn, a Desert Storm veteran now working in Rogers' unit as a civilian marketing representative.
They'll collect 20 annual payments of about $290,000 each, before taxes.
The winning numbers drawn last night were 10, 13, 14, 24, 26 and 27.
There were 34 tickets sold matching five of the six winning numbers. Each of those tickets is worth $1,363. Another 2,314 tickets matching four of the six are worth $34 each, Hynson said.
