WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Federal prosecutors have charged a former tribal casino employee with embezzlement in a scheme involving fake “players cards” at a casino in northeast Kansas.
A criminal information filed Tuesday charges 32-year-old Donald M. Collins of Wetmore with one count of embezzling tribal funds. Collins worked at the time as players club manager at the Sac and Fox Casino, which is owned by the Sac and Fox Nation of Kansas and Nebraska.
His defense attorney did not immediately return a message left seeking comment.
Collins is accused of making counterfeit cards valued at about $13,326. The cards allow bearers to play various casino games.
Prosecutors allege that about $17,443 was fraudulently won by people using them.
Collins was issued a summons to appear in federal court in Wichita on Feb. 24.
