Even if the dream of many is to earn the Powerballs, becoming a billionaire comes with its risks and hence, it is important to take safety measures. Edwin Castro, who has security agents watching his back and interests, knows this very well.
Castro is the Hispanic who hit the $2 billion Powerball jackpot, even though with the rebates and state tax payments he had $628.5 left, a figure that put him on the Forbes list and permitted him to move to one of California’s most exclusive neighborhoods.
THE SECURITY THAT EDWIN CASTRO ASSUMED
Hispanic Edwin Castro, identified as the winner of California’s $2 billion Powerball, lives a life in the style of the rich and famous. He bought a mansion worth over $25 million and now has Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanu Reeves, Salma Hayek, Tobey Maguire, and Cristina Aguilera as neighbors, among other Hollywood stars.
Aware of his reality, the nouveau riche in the US and the world – ranked 1,292 by Forbes – has opted to hire private security. He has a rotation of three guards who protect him and his home around the clock, according to the New York Post.
The publication showed images of the Hispanic man accompanied by security personnel as he left a Chase bank Wednesday, April 26 in California, with a wad of cash.
Castro was dressed casually: a blue T-shirt and gray sweatpants and beach sandals. His smile was wide, “ear to ear,” as he walked over to his new, “vintage style” Porsche 911 worth $250,000. Beside him was a tall man with blond hair, identified as one of his guards. Behind him, in another not-so-modern car, was accompanied by another man, who would also be part of the security team.
