Six Charged With Rigging Army Contracts
by Staff

Six people were arrested Friday for allegedly taking part in a contract-fixing scheme at the U.S. Army Medical Command at Fort Sam Houston in Texas.

The defendants were indicted on charges they drew up contracts totaling $18 million for companies with which they were associated or even owned outright.

Three of the men charged were current or former U.S. Army employees, the San Antonio Express-News reported. All were charged with bribery related offenses.

Federal prosecutors alleged that the six defendants conspired to run the contracts at a San Antonio consulting firm owned by one of them. The contracts involved equipment and services provided to about 20 Army hospitals.  (c) UPI
