Gambling devices seized at New Windsor business

June 18, 1996

State police raided a New Windsor restaurant and bar Friday and seized two electronic video slot machines.

Henry Frederick Ross Jr., 49, owner of the New Windsor Inn, was charged with possessing illegal gambling devices, police said. He was freed on his own recognizance.

Customers were being paid off according to their scores on the electronic games, Jerry F. Barnes, state's attorney for Carroll County, said yesterday.

Ross was indicted on similar charges after state police raided his business April 12 in response to complaints about gambling there.
