TULSA - A Bixby man was found guilty Thursday of stealing over $70,000 from Buffalo Run Casino.

Federal prosecutors in Tulsa say Ricky Dwayne Lee, 44, admitted to authorities that he posed as a computer technician in the months of October and November 2006.

According to court records, Lee gained access to the main computer sever of a locally owned casino and manipulated the value of cash-out tickets, robbing the Peoria Tribe of thousands of dollars.

According to the U.S. Attorney's office, Lee is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 14.

The accused is now facing up to 10 years in federal prison and more than $250,000 in fines.
