FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — Lottery fever is sweeping the nation, with the Mega Millions jackpot currently at $750 million while the Powerball is set at $640 million. Authorities in Florida said a woman took the mania a step too far.
Evans-Lowe was charged with grand theft, possession of lottery tickets not yet played, and grand theft of a motor vehicle, according to online booking records.
On Thursday night, deputies responded to a convenience store in Okaloosa County, where they found Evans-Lowe in a parking lot, sitting in a 2008 Nissan Armada SUV with two flat rear tires and flashing hazard lights, according to the release.
Deputies determined the SUV had been stolen earlier Thursday, WKRG reported.
