WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say two former Bel Aire police officers have been indicted for their roles in a scheme to buy and sell discounted firearms by falsely claiming they would be used for law enforcement purposes.

The U.S. attorney’s office says in a news release that 26-year-old Nathan A. Mavia of Wichita falsely certified that the guns would be owned by the Bel Aire Police Department.

He worked for the police department for about two years and is charged with one count of mail fraud.

Forty-year-old Robert S. McCaslin of Wichita is accused of trying to cover up the crime. He is charged with one count of making a false statement during a federal investigation.

Court records do not indicate whether they have attorneys.
