A Bondurant couple has claimed their $202 million Powerball jackpot. 

Iowa Lottery officials say Mary and Brian Lohse claimed their prize Thursday in Des Moines. The couple bought the ticket on the day of the September 26th Powerball drawing at a Casey's convenient store in Bondurant.

Mary, 42, is a medical assistant at a pediatric clinic. Ryan, 43, is an attorney with EMC Insurance. 

The jackpot was the second largest won in Iowa.   The couple says they've been talking about what to do with the money ever since finding out about their win the morning after the drawing.

"We've been meeting, well really since the day after, with our attorneys and financial advisors about our plans for the money and we wanna certainly benefit our community and our church, and the members of the community so we're going to be putting together some plans and some structures to that to make sure that money lasts for a while, for us and our kids, as well as being able to take care and meet those plans and goals for quite a while."

There's still a $1,000,000 ticket out there somewhere, sold in Williamsburg.

A group of Quaker Oats workers also claimed a $10,000 prize from the same September 26th drawing.
