    Two former marines based at MCAS Miramar have been indicted on bribery and fraud charges, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

    Former U. S. Marine Sergeants Luis Gilbert Menchaca and Manuel Ramos Padilla were also indicted for false travel and lodging claims.

    The indictment states Ramos knowingly signed and approved dozens of false lodging claims for Menchaca and another reservist. It also said each of the two reservists received thousands of dollars in lodging payments as a result of the scheme.

    Both men have plead not guilty and are scheduled to appear in court again on March 1.
