Oklahoma’s Seneca-Cayuga Tobacco Company bank account seized
In a late-breaking development, federal agents also raided the Wolf’s Run Trading building on a Seneca Nation reservation in western New York and detained tobacco wholesaler William Parry.
The federal government has seized more than $266,000 from the bank account of a tobacco company owned by the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma and detained a tobacco wholesaler in New York as part of a multistate investigation into the alleged illegal trafficking of tens of millions of dollars worth of untaxed cigarettes.
Chuck Craig, general manager of the Seneca-Cayuga Tobacco Co., declined to comment Wednesday on the seizure of tribal tobacco company’s funds, citing the advice of attorneys.
