Porch stopped at a 7-Eleven store in Suffolk, where he decided to buy a pair of Cash Money scratch-off tickets.

The first ticket won Porch $15, while the second turned out to be a $150,000 jackpot winner.

Porch said he plans to pay off some of his mortgage and put the rest of the money into savings.
