Two ex-employees of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and an associate were indicted on Monday for allegedly embezzling $2.77 million in tribal funds.

Former operations manager Timmy Cox, former technical adviser Danny Wisher, and his son-in-law, Michael Crumpton, face 15 counts of theft, embezzlement, money laundering and conspiracy to hide illegal activities.

The indictment stems from an ongoing investigation into the business dealings of ousted Chief Jim Billie. Billie has not been implicated in any scheme by federal authorities.
