Indian tribe crimes usually involve corruption, tax, theft, embezzlement, or misappropriation of tribal funds and/or federal funds. It is usually the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Office of Indian Tribal Governments, and the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Division (IRS-CI) which investigate these types of crimes.
These crimes include but are not limited to theft, embezzlement of federal funds, embezzlement from Tribal Enterprises, use of Tribal credit cards, misrepresentations regarding tax status, using casino comps for fraudulent purposes, and sheltering gains.
