Armed guards have been removed from the casino owned by the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians in California, The Red Bluff Daily News reports.

Chairman Andy Freeman removed the security force from the Rolling Hills Casino after receiving a administrative cease and desist order from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the paper said. He had placed guards at the facility after an internal leadership dispute erupted in April.

The casino remains in operation despite attempts by a rival faction to shut it down. The National Indian Gaming Commission is conducting an investigation to determine whether to issue a notice of violation (NOV) to the tribe due to the ongoing dispute.
