PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey man who won the $338 million Powerball jackpot owes about $29,000 in child support.

Forty-four-year-old Pedro Quezada on Tuesday claimed a lump-sum payment worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.

A spokesman for Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik says the sheriff's office's warrant squad is attempting to find Quezada to resolve the matter.

Spokesman Bill Maer (mayr) also says the state Lottery Division generally satisfies such judgments before winnings are released. He says Quezada is subject to potential arrest like everyone else until the warrant is satisfied.

The unpaid child support payments go back to 2009. It's not known which of Quezada's five children are covered under the payments.
