Third Navy officer arrested in bribery scheme

Federal officials say a third senior U.S. Navy official has been arrested in connection with a massive bribery scheme in Asia that helped a Malaysian defense contractor overbill the Pentagon by millions of dollars in exchange for prostitutes, luxury trips and other bribes.

Federal prosecutors said U.S. Navy Commander Jose Luis Sanchez was arrested Wednesday in Tampa, Fla.

In a criminal complaint, Sanchez is accused of accepting prostitutes, luxury travel and $100,000 cash from a foreign defense contractor in exchange for classified and internal U.S. Navy information.
