The strip search prank call scam is a series of incidents that occurred over roughly a decade before an arrest was made in 2004.
These incidents involved a man calling a restaurant or grocery store, claiming to be a police detective, and convincing managers to conduct strip searches of female employees or perform other unusual acts on behalf of the police.
The calls were usually placed to fast-food restaurants in small rural towns. Over 70 such occurrences were reported in 30 U.S. States.
This was until an incident in 2004 in Mount Washington, Kentucky, finally led to the arrest and charging of David Stewart.
Stewart was a 37 year-old employee of Corrections Corporation of America, a private-commercial firm contracted by several states to provide corrections officers at private detention facilities.
This man even got the fiancé of one Assistant Manager order a worker to perform oral sex on him.
