FORT WORTH  (AP) – Four men have been accused in a bribery investigation involving maintenance contracts for a North Texas military installation.

Prosecutors on Thursday announced the 11-count indictment linked to bids for road and roofing contracts for Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls.

A federal grand jury in Fort Worth on Wednesday indicted two government workers and two businessmen on fraud and conspiracy counts.

Court appearances are pending for John Torrance Gilmore of Wichita Falls, Larry Thomas Ballard of Wichita Falls, James Carmon Freeman of Vernon and Miguel Angel Hughes of Fort Worth.

Gilmore and Ballard worked in the base’s civil engineering department. Hughes owned Hughes and Guzman Construction Services LLC. Freeman owned Freeman Construction.

Prosecutors allege Gilmore and Ballard provided confidential bid details to Freeman and Hughes, in exchange for bribes.
