According to authorities, Jones Ver Hoeven routinely would steal cash from sales on muliple cartons of cigarettes purchased, ringing up fewer than sold and pocketing as much as $800 a day. The scheme spanned a reported 2 1/2 year period from January 2008 through August of 2010. She is reported to have lost a significant amount of money while gambling at the Tulalip tribe's Quil Ceda Creek Casino.
