A Federal grand jury indicted a former Camp Lejeune Marine.

A Gunnery Sergeant who was deployed in Iraq is accused of seeking out bribes with a scheme of inflating purchase prices for construction materials.  The Marine is identified as Julio Arreola.  Arreola's job was to supervise construction projects.

Arreola was indicted in late July.
