Meadows Racetrack and Casino
State police say a western Pennsylvania man who befriended a woman at a harness racing track two years ago has since conned her out of $15,000 by pretending he had cancer.
While Washington County investigators say a former Rankin Police chief’s death appears to be from natural causes, former Allegheny County Coroner Dr. Cyril Wecht says police use of a Taser did not directly cause his death.
The Meadows Casino was evacuated Friday night and players left without their payouts because of a power failure. A transformer blew, killing the power to the slot machines and the casino’s security system.
