SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — An Eagle Pass man is in trouble with the feds for allegedly embezzling money from the Kickapoo Traditional Tribe of Texas for nearly five years.

The FBI says it arrested 48-year-old Eduardo Villarreal in Del Rio Thursday after a federal grand jury indicted Villarreal on a charge of Embezzlement and Theft from an Indian Organization.

The indictment accuses Villarreal of embezzling more than $1,000 from the Kickapoo tribe from April 2014 through January 2019.

If convicted, Villarreal faces up to five years in federal prison.
