IL - Jackpot Winner Busted At Casino
Talk about bad luck. Christina Franquia hit the jackpot at the Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin. An 83 year old man tried to collect the winnings, but it was apparent by her actions that it was Franquia was the winner.
LE arrived to asses the situation and asked Franquia for ID. She gave cops a resident alien card and a Social Security card both which proved to be fake. The best part is she told cops that a man named "Amigo" approached her in a supermarket years ago and made the cards for free for her. Sure. Franquia posted her bail and she can't have the jackpot of which LE wouldn't say how much it was. She's on a banned list at the casino. The money will go to charity.
