Lottery winner used $3 million winnings to fund crystal meth ring


BRUNSWICK, Georgia – Authorities said a Georgia lottery winner’s “unsound investment strategy” involved using his $3 million to start his own business — as a crystal meth dealer.

U.S. Attorney Ed Tarver said Ronnie Music Jr., 45, of Waycross, pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and firearms charges last week in a Brunswick federal court.

Tarver said Music won $3 million from a Georgia Lotter scratchers game in 2015 and was arrested in September of that same year when he and a group of accomplices were found with 11 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, worth more than $500,000, they were apparently trying to sell.

Prosecutors said they also seized $600,000 cash, firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and multiple vehicles in the course of the investigation. More
