RALEIGH, N.C. (WECT) - A longshoreman in Brunswick County recently won a $2 million Powerball prize.

Wayne Harris, of Supply, purchased the winning ticket from the Circle K on North Howe Street in Southport.

Harris claimed his prize last Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $1,413,902.

Harris says he plans to put some of his winnings into savings for his children and will invest the rest.
