Seven current and former members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department have been indicted on perjury, theft and conspiracy charges.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office says the defendants falsified training documents so they would be eligible for increased compensation in retirement benefits.

Prosecutors say the thefts ranged from $2,000 to $15,000.

The investigation started in 2009.
