On October 24, a federal grand jury indicted Anthony E. Street, 47, the former president of the Tonkawa Tribe on 17 counts for allegedly conspiring with two others to embezzle more than $500,000 from the tribe according to an article in the Republic.
A trial date has been set for December at which time Street will face one count of conspiracy and 16 counts of embezzlement from an Indian tribal organization.
The roughly 500-member tribe is located in Tonkawa, in north-central Oklahoma. Street, his vice president Gordon Warrior and Secretary-Treasurer Dawena Pappan are accused of writing more than 300 checks while in official positions, while handling the tribe’s daily operations.
