A 28-year-veteran of the Fort Wayne Police Department and his wife have won $1 million playing the Hoosier Lottery.
Jack and Debra Woodruff, both lifelong city residents, matched the first five numbers, but not the Megaball, in the July 1 Mega Millions drawing, according to a statement from the Hoosier Lottery.
When the couple went to claim their winnings Thursday in Indianapolis, they thought their ticket was worth $250,000.
