A bodega in Queens Village sold a winning lottery ticket worth more than $42,000 last week.

The winning Take 5 ticket was purchased at Super Spring Grocery, located at 90-39 Springfield Blvd., according to the New York Lottery.

The lucky winner matched all five numbers to clinch the top prize of $42,157.

The draw took place on Jan. 20 — for the evening draw — and the winning numbers were 18, 21, 24, 26, and 27.

Take 5 drawings are televised twice daily at 2:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. To win the top prize, players must match all five numbers drawn. Numbers range from 1 to 39.

Friday’s draw came a week after a bodega in Long Island City — Momta Grocery on Vernon Boulevard — sold a $1 million Mega Millions winning ticket.

Meanwhile, a winning Take 5 ticket was sold by a supermarket in Jamaica, Queens, for the Jan. 11 draw. The winning ticket was worth $37,832 and was sold by Devin Food on Hillside Avenue.

Attorney General releases body-cam footage in probe of MTA police shooting in Jamaica

New York Attorney General Letitia James on Thursday released police body-worn camera footage that her office obtained as part of the ongoing investigation into the shooting death of 52-year-old Bashe McDaniel, who died on Dec. 29, 2023, following an encounter with members of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, (MTA) Police in Jamaica. The probe by her Office of Special Investigation is mandated under state law.

On the night of Dec. 29, two MTA officers were searching for an individual on Sutphin Boulevard following a report of an alleged sexual assault at the Jamaica LIRR/AirTrain station a block away. The officers spotted McDaniel, who appeared to be wearing the same clothing that was described in the report. As the officers were attempting to handcuff McDaniel, they could be heard ordering him to give them his hands. When he failed to comply, one of the officers used a Taser several times. As McDaniel shrieked and continued to struggle, he allegedly fired a semi-automatic firearm, according to the AG’s office. The two officers discharged their service weapons multiple times in response, striking McDaniel once in the head.
