A Moorhead couple, Paul and Joyce Echols, have collected just over $1.4 million, becoming Minnesota's newest millionaires. 

KFGO reports that Paul Echols discovered that he had a winning Gopher 5 ticket on Tuesday morning. He matched all five numbers in the May 13 drawing.

Echols purchased the ticket at Orton's convenience store in south Moorhead.

Echols and his wife drove to State Lottery headquarters in Roseville to claim the prize.

The store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
