PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Two men have been charged with fraud against the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

A federal grand jury in Portland has returned a six-count indictment charging Roderick Ariwite and Thomas Adams with conspiracy and theft/misapplication of funds from a Tribal organization, U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams said in a news release Friday.

The indictment charges Ariwite, of the Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho, and Adams, of the Warm Springs Reservation, with conspiring to misappropriate $93,700 of tribal funds and with five counts of substantive misappropriation of tribal funds. It wasn’t immediately known if the two men have lawyers to comment on their cases.
