Judge hears dispute on Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes bank account
Posted: Tuesday, June 12, 2012
A judge in Oklahoma heard a dispute over a bank account containing funds owned by the
Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes
The First Bank and Trust Co. placed an administrative freeze on the account, which reportedly contains $6.4 million. The bank isn't sure who is in control of the tribe -- Gov. Janice Prairie Chief-Boswell or Lt. Gov. Leslie Wandrie-Harjo.
According to an attorney for the bank, someone from the tribe withdrew $2 million shortly before the freeze. Someone was trying to withdraw another $1.9 million as the freeze was imposed, the attorney said.
