ELKTON, Md. (AP) - Proprietors of a family-run restaurant and liquor store in Elkton say they don't know much about the man who purchased a winning $125 million Powerball ticket there.

The Baltimore Sun reports
that the Maryland Lottery doesn't know the winner's name either. Someone called the store on Christmas morning to ask for the winning numbers, and when the clerk read them, the man said, "Looks like I am the winner."

Jeff Wesley, a member of the family that operates the restaurant, says he sold the winning ticket at 3:13 p.m. Saturday.

Wesley says he reviewed video and neither he nor anybody else in the store recognized the buyer. The store gets a $25,000 commission for selling the winning ticket, which Wesley says will go back into the business.
