BATON ROUGE- A woman cashed in a $2 million winning Powerball ticket the day before her 26 birthday.
On September 5, Sarah Hebert cashed in the winning ticket at the Louisiana Lottery Headquarters.

The mother of three said she plans to invest a portion of the prize money for her children, ages 2, 4 and 8. Hebert received $1,400,000 after state and federal tax withholdings.
