A Marshallville police officer has won $1 million in a Georgia Lottery prize riding in Peach County.
Tinichia Story, who lives in Montezuma, won the big bucks playing the instant game Maximum Green. She claimed her prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery's District Office in Macon.
Story bought the ticket at a Family Food Mart in Fort Valley. "I scratched the ticket off and I couldn't believe it," she said according to the news release from the Georgia Lottery sent out Friday.
Story has a Yorkshire Terrier named Toby and says that "her nieces and nephews will be taken care of, and Toby will have a tote bag added to his collection."
