New Jersey man claims winning ticket in $338 lottery
A New Jersey convenience store owner has stepped forward to claim the winning ticket in the $338 million Powerball lottery, several media reported on Monday.

Pedro Quezada, 44, walked into a Passaic, New Jersey, liquor store where the winning ticket was sold and handed a ticket over to be validated late Monday afternoon, The Bergen Record newspaper reported.

The owner of the store scanned Quezada's ticket and a message of "Jackpot!" appeared, NBC 4 New York reported.

"I'm very happy," Quezada, who is originally from the Dominican Republic, told reporters in Spanish. He said he is a father of five.
