65 Y.O. Strip-Searched for Winning Ticket

November 19th, 2007

A 65-year-old great-grandmother is suing a Yonkers, N.Y., casino, alleging she was humiliated by being forced to submit to a strip search.
Myrna Jones said the alleged ill treatment began when her winner’s slip went missing. Jones said she was playing the $1 slot machines at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway when she won an $80 prize. However, the machine did not dispense a winner’s slip.
A mechanic was called to look at the machine and Jones was taken to a room for questioning. She said she was interrogated by a man — who she said she later discovered was an undercover state trooper — and accused of hiding the winning slip to defraud the casino.
A strip search was ordered when the first check of the machine failed to yield the missing slip.
“I felt just humiliated, embarrassed,” Jones said.
Jones said the ticket was found in the machine after she was searched by a security woman.
