Posted: Updated:

 DES MOINES, Iowa – Co-workers at the Quaker Oats plant in Cedar Rapids have stepped forward as winners of a $241 million Powerball jackpot.         

A lottery spokeswoman says one of the 20 workers bought the winning ticket for the group for the June 13 drawing and the winnings will be split 20 ways.         

A spokesman for the winners declined to give their names, but says the workers range between 35 and 64 years old and work in the shipping department.         

The group took a chartered bus Wednesday from Cedar Rapids to Des Moines to present the ticket to lottery officials.

The jackpot is the 15th largest won by Powerball players.
