Rolling Hills Casino Tribe Officials, PLEAD GUILTY To CONSPIRACY

Former officials that is.  Embezzlers, Cheaters. THIEVES

The allegations in the indictment were breathtaking: three former officials of the tribe that runs the Rolling Hills Casino had embezzled $6 million and used the money to buy lavish homes, cars and gold coins and for travel overseas.

The allegations laid out in 2017 in a 69-count indictment and an earlier federal civil suit claimed the three had gone on a “12-year looting spree” and used the money to buy tickets to World Series, Final Four and NBA games and charter private jets and then lied to federal agents investigating the conspiracy.

All three defendants – including one who was a former FBI agent in Sacramento – denied the charges and were headed for trial next month in federal court in Sacramento.

LESLIE LOHSE falls from grace:
In 2014, estimates indicated the casino generated $54,000 annually for each of the 300 adult members of the tribe.

But the flood of gamblers’ cash created a split among tribal members, leading to a 2014 audit that found $17 million had been spent on private jet travel, up to $93 million had been spent investments considered “high-risk, start-up companies,” and $61 million was spent on excessive overhead and compensation.

The 2017 indictment of the trio spelled out a number of allegations about where the money went, including at least $84,000 spent on a koi pond at Ines Crosby’s home, $243,000 for a swimming pool and zero edge spa at John Crosby’s house and another $16,000 for a putting green there, and $9,600 to pay off credit card debt for Lohse.

The dispute led to a fight for control of the casino that at one point involved an armed standoff outside the gambling hall and a cyberattack that destroyed some casino computer records.

SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE PALA MEMBERS.

SEE WHAT AN AUDIT CAN DISCLOSE ABOUT THE MONEY THAT IS MISSING FROM YOUR TRIBE.
GET AN AUDIT DONE ASAP AND HAVE THESE CROOKS ARRESTED AND PUT IN PRISON FOR THEIR CRIMES.
IF IT WAS YOU SITING ON THE EC AND SMITH AND NIETO WERE IN YOUR SHOES THEY WOULD FOR SURE REQUEST AN AUDIT AND HAVE YOU IN PRISON, SO WHY AREN'T YOU TAKING ACTION AGAINST THEM.

Wow I wonder when Mark Macarro will be inedited. Marks brother John Macarro was caught stealing not once but twice and Mark did nothing. But the tribal members wonted his head so he resigned from being head of tribal legal department even though he didn't have a license to practice law in California. His wife was the accountant and she resigned for covering up the theft. Also it was said Mark and his brother were skimming 1% or 2% of the disenrolled precap money.

Maybe this is way John had 3 Homes at a million dollar value. Now he hiding in the state of Washington. Marks wife a lobbyist was getting payed 3 time the amount other lobbyist were paid.
