  • Delaware State Police detectives with the Division of Gaming Enforcement have arrested an employee of the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino following an investigation into unauthorized use of cards used for free slots play.
    The employee, identified as Kimberly Finch, 20, of Dover, allegedly used her position as a Dover Downs Players Club representative to put unearned and unauthorized free credits on player's cards, said Department of Safety and Homeland Security Kimberly Chandler.
    The investigation determined Finch conspired with Sandra Eubanks, 58, of Landover, Md., Kim Thomas, 45, of Washington, D.C., and Linwood Thomas, 56, also of Washington, providing her with money and gifts in return for $31,255 in free slot play at the casino, Chandler said.
    Eubanks, Thomas and Thomas were arrested Feb. 1 at Dover Downs, and charged with identity theft, felony theft, conspiracy and misdemeanor theft, and released on secured bonds.
    Finch was taken into custody Feb. 4 with the assistance of the Harrington Police Department, and charged with identity theft, second-degree conspiracy, felony theft, misdemeanor theft, falsifying business records, and misuse of a computer.
    She was jailed at the Baylor Women's Correctional Institution, New Castle, in default of a $46,000 cash bail.
