    Lottery officials say the South Brunswick man chose the cash option and will get about $62 million after taxes.

    Lottery officials say a New Jersey man has claimed the final share of this month's $448 million Powerball jackpot.

    Mario Scarnici held one of the three winning tickets sold for the Aug. 7 drawing. Lottery officials say the South Brunswick man chose the cash option and will get about $62 million after taxes.

    Scarnici bought his winning ticket at a South Brunswick supermarket.

    Lottery officials said Scarnici recently claimed his prize, but further details were not disclosed. A telephone number for Scarnici could not be located Saturday afternoon.

    Another winning ticket for the drawing was held by a group of 16 Ocean County vehicle maintenance employees. A check for more than $86 million was presented to the group at Lottery Headquarters last week. Each will get about $3.8 million after taxes, according to lottery spokeswoman Judith Drucker.

    The third was held by a suburban Minneapolis man. Paul White, claimed one of the Powerball prizes two weeks ago.
