OSBI Arrests Former Director of Horse Association
OSBI agents served a warrant for the arrest today of the former executive director of the Oklahoma Horsemen’s Benevolent Protective Association (a.k.a. Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma) for three counts of embezzlement by employee.
George Ronald Canady, 55, was arrested at his business, RGIS Inventory Specialists, at 300 N. Meridian, Suite 102 N. He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
The Oklahoma County District Attorney’s office requested OSBI assistance last year after an audit by the association showed more than $200,000 was missing.
Canady resigned from the association in May 2007.
