Federal authorities laid charged against five men who are accused of operating an unauthorized gaming facility on Mohawk land in New York.

The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe ordered the Three Feathers Casino to close in January. But the operators kept it up and running and stole $200,000 worth of power from the National Grid in the process, federal authorities said.

Tribal, federal and state authorities raided the facility on Tuesday. James Gray, William Roger Jock, Thomas Angus Square, Anthony Laughing Sr., and Joseph Hight were charged with conducting an illegal gambling business and unlawfully possessing gambling devices.
