Charges dropped against one person in Hopland Band casino theft

Charges were dropped against a woman who was one of eight people who are accused of stealing more than $102,000 from the casino owned by the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians of California.

Gloria Marie Nelson, 77, had been charged with felony embezzlement and grand theft charge. But there appeared to be insufficient evidence that she participated in the scheme because her signature had been forged on a false jackpot at the Sho-Ka-Wah Casino

Seven people, including a former employee, remain charged with stealing from the casino.
