Ogaldez said that he had purchased a quick pick ticket with numbers 17, 35,19, 34 and13 at a local store and was still at the establishment when he was informed by the proprietor that someone who had bought a ticket from the store had won the Fantasy 5 prize.


Ogaldez said that upon checking his ticket he realized that he was the lucky winner. He quickly called his family and friends to share the good news.


The lucky police constable says that he finally has the opportunity to build his dream home, purchase a brand new vehicle, pay off several bills and open a savings account.
