Federal authorities seized more than $1 million in property in Winnebago raid


The economic development arm of the Winnebago Tribe stands to lose more than $1 million in property after a raid on the reservation earlier this year.

Federal authorities seized nearly 100,000 cartons of cigarettes, a Dodge Ram truck and even a forklift during the two-day affair in Nebraska in January. Lance Morgan, a tribal citizen who serves as chief executive officer for Ho-Chunk Inc., estimated that the value of the tobacco products alone is $1.4 million.
