Police Increase Patrols Around Home Of Lottery Winner

Police are providing extra patrols around the home of a Massachusetts woman who won the $758.7 million Powerball prize.

Mavis Wanczyk, a hospital worker from the western Massachusetts town of Chicopee, was announced Thursday as the winner of the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

After winning the $758.7 million Powerball prize, she also has something else she never could have imagined.

A police presence outside her home.

Officials report that officers are increasing their patrols and have even parked in her driveway.
Reporters are present in the area as well as neighbors that have been “hanging around” to speak to the new millionaire.

Wanczyk quit her job on Thursday, saying she just wanted to go back to bed and Lottery officials say she chose to take a lump sum payment of $480 million, or $336 million after taxes.
