Cheyenne-Arapaho official charged with stealing

A member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes' business committee has been charged with embezzling $70,000 in tribal funds.

The 11 charges against Roy Dean Bullcoming were laid in tribal court. Two employees were also charged in connection with the alleged embezzlement.

Bullcoming disputes that he is guilty of embezzling funds from the tribal casino. He said the tribe has records of what happened to the money -- he said it went to tribal programs.

"It's all accounted for. It's all there," he told The Oklahoman while gambling at the tribe's casino.
