Investigators: Women charged for cheating at church Bingo

Posted: Updated:

Police in Runnemede say a church Bingo night went awry after an allegation that two players had taped a called number onto their card to claim a Bingo win.

According to investigators, Teresa Davis, 71, and Keasha Brockington, 38, both of Camden, said they had the winning card carrying a prize of nearly $200 Thursday at Saint Maria Goretti Church Hall.

But a church volunteer noticed one of the winning numbers had been taped over the number on the card.

The pair were charged with improper behavior under a borough ordinance.

A parish official says it's the first issue in over 20 years of Bingo games at the church.

It wasn't clear whether they had attorneys.

A message left for Davis wasn't immediately returned; a working number for Brockington couldn't be found.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
