A federal grand jury has announced a 69-count indictment against several former tribal officials and employees of a Tehama County Indian tribe. The indictment charges 53-year-old John Crosby of Redding, 73-year-old Ines Crosby or Orland, and 62-year-old Leslie Lohse of Glenn County with conspiracy to embezzle tribal funds & embezzlement of tribal funds. According to court documents the 3 were officers and employees of the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians in Tehama and Glenn Counties. Between January 2009 and May of 2014 the 3 apparently had access to the substantial revenues made from the Rolling Hills Casino. The indictment charges that each defendant falsely stated to a federal agent that the tribe had given them a 5-Million Dollar line of credit. The 3 allegedly tried to cover up the embezzlement by creating false documents and by remotely accessing the tribes computers to destroy evidence. John Crosby and Lohse submitted tax returns without including the embezzled funds. Ines Crosby did not file any tax returns and authorities say that she stole at least 6-Million Dollars.If convicted each of the defendants is facing a long prison sentence and substantial fines.
