One man’s trash is another man’s treasure as a Maryland man threw away a Mega Millions ticket in the garbage.

Fortunately, after realizing that the ticket was worth $250,000, the man proceeded to rummage through the trash for 90 minutes before retrieving his winning ticket, according to Baltimore television station WBAL.

Buying several tickets for the drawing on March 9, the man, 49, threw away the tickets, but was informed by his brother that an employee from the Maryland Lottery that he actually had a winning ticket.

After frantically calling the store, the man made his return to search for his money before finally finding it.

That just goes to show that anybody can find just about anything if they dig deep enough into the garbage can.  Everyone be looking out to the local dumpster, you could be a winner.
