Grand jury probes Cheyenne-Arapaho spending

A federal grand jury is investigating the spending habits of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, The Daily Oklahoman reports.

The investigation centers on allegations that tribal officials misspent casino profits. The grand jury has asked for financial records related to the casino, the paper said.

The investigation could also be focusing on money the tribes receive under a gasoline compact with the state. The tribes stopped selling gas in 1999 but have received $2.5 million from the state since then, the paper said.
