BP on Slappey Blvd.

An Albany man found a winning scratch-off ticket in the trash.

Jermaine Irvin said he was doing his daily routine of cleaning the trash at the BP on Slappey Blvd. when he noticed the ticket.

He said he wasn't sure it was the real deal, so he took it to the counter to find out.

It was real. A $10,000 scratch off found in the trash. He couldn't believe it.

Jermaine said since he didn't need the money, he gave it away to family and friends.
