GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a South Mississippi man on charges alleging he made false statements on travel vouchers for more than $23,000 five years ago while working at Stennis Space Center.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Gulfport says 59-year-old John Mack Brown was a civilian worker under jurisdiction of the U.S. Navy when he submitted fraudulent travel receipts to the Department of Defense.

The indictment charged Brown with four counts of making false statements.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1oWWFMt ) Brown pleaded not guilty Monday.

His trial is set for a court calendar that starts Dec. 1.

Brown is free on an unsecured bond of $25,000.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
