A trio of people, including a mother and her son, were so happy that they had just hit the lottery for $20,000 that they celebrated by getting arrested together.
Migdalia Cruz and her son Luis Correa were arrested on heroin-related charges, while Correa’s girlfriend, Dana LaFlamme, was arrested on a probation violation. It all happened after police in Volusia County, Florida executed a search warrant of their home. They found a box that contained three bags of drugs, which tested positive for heroin and fentanyl.
The police also found prescription pills, ecstasy, cocaine residue, and various drug paraphernalia in the house. Migdalia explained to police that she had just returned from Orlando where she and her son had claimed a $20,000 prize for a winning scratch-off ticket they had won. Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions!
