(NEW YORK) — America has gotten its first look at the New Jersey county workers known as “Ocean’s 16″ who took one-third of last Wednesday’s $448 million Powerball jackpot.

The New Jersey Lottery tweeted a photo Monday of the group claiming their share of the prize, with the caption: “And here they are… the ‘Ocean’s 16’ #Powerball group! Congratulations!”

The 16 are employees of the Ocean County Vehicle Maintenance Department in Toms River, N.J.  They will all be formally introduced at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

The group will divvy up $149.4 million, which is reduced to $86 million when taken as a lump sum, and further reduced to $58.3 million after taxes.

The garage workers are splitting their winnings from one of the largest jackpots in lottery history with Paul White, 45, of Ham Lake, Minn., who works for an electrical contractor.

The third winning ticket was also sold in New Jersey at a Stop & Shop in South Brunswick.  The winner has still not come forward.

The winning numbers in last Wednesday’s drawing were 58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32.
