FBI agents reported at Choctaw casinos

By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) — The FBI in Jackson is declining to comment on reports that agents are investigating the casinos at the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in Neshoba County.

The Neshoba Democrat and two Jackson television stations were reporting that FBI agents were on the grounds at the Golden Moon and Silver Star casinos.

A spokesman for the tribe did not return calls to The Associated Press seeking comment. The FBI in Jackson told the AP that it would have no comment on the reports.

The Neshoba Democrat reported the Choctaw Tribal Council was briefed Tuesday on an FBI investigation under way at Pearl River Resort.

Choctaw Attorney General Donald L. Kilgore told the council they needed to discuss “why the FBI is here.”

The meeting adjourned a couple of minutes later.
