Powerball Winner Not Caught on Tape in Prince George's County
The man featured in an Upper Marlboro convenience store video released last week was not the person who claimed the ticket in Arizona.
A video released from an Upper Marlboro convenience store that showed a man celebrating a big Powerball win led many in Maryland to believe that man was a Powerball jackpot winner.
That no longer appears to be true. WJLA is reporting that the man in the video is not the person who claimed the ticket in Arizona. The man who claimed his ticket is remaining anonymous, but he is in his 30s from Fountain Hills, AZ, WJLA reports.
WUSA9's Scott Broom is reporting that the man in the Upper Marlboro video was a Maryland man recently arrested in Virginia for credit card larceny.
According to CNN, the second ticket holder in November's record Powerball win came forward Friday to claim the nearly $200 million prize before taxes.
