Luck arrived last night for a lottery player in Delaware County, but is about take a hike for another in Montgomery County. Together, we're talking more than a million dollars here. Monday night's Cash 5 jackpot was worth $728,528.50, and the winning ticket was purchased at the Wawa at 600 S. Governor Printz Blvd. in Essington . The winner matched all the numbers: 9, 13, 20, 29 and 31. Time is running out, however, for a Cash 5 ticket worth $325,000 for the March 18, 2012, drawing.

It was supposed to be a "sweet beat" - a robbery that would earn Ceasar Holloway enough for an Aston Martin luxury car. It turned into a double murder at a flashy new Northern Liberties complex that on Thursday earned Holloway 20 to 40 years behind bars. Before he was sentenced by Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart, Holloway, 37, turned and apologized to Sandy Thal, the mother of victim Rian Thal. "It was not my intention for anything like this to happen to your daughter," he said.

EVERY commercial fisherman has good days and bad days, stretches when the sea seems as barren as the moon and others when the nets are fat with fins, claws and shells. Matthew Camp, of Lower Township, Cape May County, had a recent run of good days aboard a scallop boat, the F.V. Nancy Elizabeth, and things were set to get even better Sept. 9 when he planned to buy an engagement ring and propose to his longtime girlfriend, Tabitha Bohn. Camp, 32, cashed a check for $12,000 at a bank that morning, stuffed the bills into his backpack and headed south on the Garden State Parkway on his motorcycle about 8 a.m. Then fate or a faulty zipper deep-sixed the day: All those bills fluttered out of his backpack, all those hours on the ocean tossed away like a shucked scallop shell.

Cash payments for genoa salami, capicola ham, and provolone led to a guilty plea for tax evasion for Nicholas Papanier, 57, who has been working to turn the Primo Hoagies chain into a successful franchise business. Papanier, who owns Primo Hoagies Franchising as well as Nellie's Provisions in Gloucester City, often received cash payments from Primo franchisees when they bought deli products from him, according to documents filed in federal court in Camden on Friday. Papanier diverted $556,664 in cash to his bank accounts during 2006, 2007 and 2008, in the amounts of, in order, $56,395, $349,264, and $151,005.

Philadelphia Police Officer Gerold Gibson's assignment on Jan. 31 was routine: Pick up a suspected drug car and drive it back to the narcotics unit for processing. Gibson did not know that the 1998 Lexus was part of a police-FBI sting and equipped with hidden cameras. Seven minutes of video - allegedly showing Gibson search for and pocket $140 in cash - was key evidence Tuesday at a preliminary hearing where Gibson was held for trial. Gibson, 43, an officer for 17 years and son-in-law of Gov. Corbett, was ordered to stand trial on six theft-related charges by Municipal Court Judge Felice R. Stack.

Last night, no one hit all the numbers drawn in Mega Millions - 1, 4, 6, 11 and 14, with a Mega Ball of 30 - so the advertised annuity jumped from $241 million to $290 million, or from $170 million to $205 million for the cash. A whopping 68 tickets missed only the Mega Ball, including two in the Philadelphia area. One was sold at the 7-Eleven at 320 E. Street Rd. in Feasterville, Bucks County.
