The New Tiverton Casino


The Digital Edition of the Providence Journal is reporting that a proposed casino, hotel, and parking garage that was approved by Rhode Island and Tiverton Voters last fall, and to be developed by Twin River Tiverton LLC was approved by a Tiverton Planning Board by a 6-1 vote. 
 
The location of the new casino, proposed to open at some point in 2018, is a  little more than a football field from the Massachusetts and Rhode Island State Lines,; it will be located between Routes 24 and 81 on nearly 50 acres of  land. 

The casino will be over 77-thousand square feet with more than 30 live table games and up to one thousand video slot and video poker machines; an 84 room hotel and a two level parking garage, along with surface parking, will make up the complex.

When Lawmakers Return


Under current Massachusetts General Law, solicitation for murder is classified as a misdemeanor, while in Maine and New Hampshire, it can land you in jail for up to 20 years if you're convicted. 
 
Increasing the penalty for that offense is part of a reform package sent to Beacon Hill by The Baker Administration as the Great and General Court prepares to go back into formal session following the Labor Day Weekend. 
 
Somerset-based Attorney and WSAR Legal Analyst Steve Sabre tells WSAR that the Administration likely felt it was time for an upgrade in penalties for planning to murder someone or hiring someone to do it for you.

FRPD On Banking Scam


The Fall River Police Department is warning you of a recent scam that is targeting banking customers using the Snapchat app.

Consumers are then asked to provide their new A-T-M and PIN numbers, which are then used to deposit bogus checks and access money from the account. 
 
The scammers could then put your credit score and other information at risk. 
 
The FRPD and Bank Administrators are reminding you not to provide personal banking information to anyone.
