A west suburban man reaches into his cookie jar and pulls out something much sweeter than an Oreo. How about a winning lottery ticket worth $4.85 million dollars? Geneva`s Ricardo Cerezo was cleaning out a cookie jar filled with lottery tickets dating back several months. He took them in to his local convenience store to scan them when one of them popped up a winner. That`s when he started comparing his numbers against the lottery website. The discovery couldn`t come at a better time. He and his family were facing foreclosure and they`ll use the winnings to pay-off their home.
