WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A former tribal casino employee has pleaded guilty to embezzlement in a scheme involving fake “players cards” at a northeast Kansas casino.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 32-year-old Donald M. Collins, of Wetmore, entered the guilty plea Wednesday.

The embezzlement occurred while Collins worked as players club manager at the Sac and Fox Casino, which is owned by the Sac and Fox Nation of Kansas and Nebraska.

Collins is accused of making counterfeit cards valued at about $13,326. The cards allow bearers to play various casino games.

Prosecutors allege that about $17,443 was fraudulently won by people using them.

Sentencing is set for July 7. He faces up to five years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
