The Alturas Indian tribe’s Desert Rose Casino will reopen after a temporary closure.
Earlier this week, the General Council of the Alturas Indian Rancheria met at the Alturas Indian Rancheria Event Center to overturn the actions of Wendy Del Rosa and non-tribal members who caused the temporary closure of the casino, according to a press release.
According to the Sacramento law firm Fredericks Peebles and Morgan, former employees Wendy Del Rosa, Wayne Smith and Creig Marcus removed all the cash from the casino. The matter has been turned over for criminal investigation, the release said.
The tribe’s General Council regained control of the casino within hours and has reopened it.
On Tuesday, the General Council removed Del Rosa from the business committee based on her attempted closure of the casino.
