    Lottery winner robbed

    Can you believe it?? A half a mil in the car and they didn't keep it, bet they thought they had broken into John Gotties car.

    CROSS LANES, W.Va. Someone broke into Powerball winner Jack Whittaker's sport utility vehicle outside a strip club Tuesday morning and stole about $545,000, but the money was later recovered.

    Whittaker, a Scott Depot resident who hit Powerball's richest jackpot on Christmas Day, arrived at the Pink Pony in Cross Lanes around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and parked his Lincoln Navigator outside the main entrance.

    Someone broke out the driver's side window and took a black briefcase containing $245,000 in cash and three blank $100,000 cashier's checks, said Kanawha County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Phil Morris.

    The briefcase, cash and checks were later found behind a Dumpster on the property, Morris said.

    A window on a second vehicle parked on the lot also was broken, he said.

    Police have suspects but no arrests have been made, he said.

    Employees at the Pink Pony would not comment.

    "[Whittaker] gambles quite a bit, and we believe that's the reason that the large sum of money was in possession in at this time," an official told the Charleston Daily Mail (search).

    Tri-State Racetrack & Gaming in Nitro is about a mile from the Pink Pony, but it was not clear Tuesday morning if Whittaker had been at the greyhound track before going to the club.

    Whittaker claimed a $113 million cash option after winning a record $314.9 million jackpot on Christmas Day.

    Whittaker was at the club later Tuesday morning but left without commenting. His spokesman, Bill Bissett, did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.

    actually I believe he was already worth millions prior to the lottery win, however, you certainly have to question his judgement

    Is he the lotto winner who has set up a foundation to give money to charities and needy people? I saw some guy on TV talking about how it is a full time job sifting thru the requests to determine who he gives money to.
