Greenwich Man Wins Lottery Twice

One Greenwich man has won the state lottery for the second time this summer.

Good thing his wife needed milk at the store.

Joe Lanoce won $25,000 playing the "$200,000 High Stakes Casino" game. Earlier in the summer he won $10,000 playing the "$1,000,000 Jackpot" game.

Lanoce bought both tickets at Courtesy Mobil Greenwich.

Lanoce said in a news release issued by Connecticut Lottery he wouldn't have been shopping but his wife told him he needed to get milk.

Lanoce arrived at Connecticut Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill last week where he accepted a check for $17,081, his latest winning after taxes. He said the money will go toward his daughter's college education.
