MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A federal grand jury has indicted two Morgantown men for allegedly using a federal agency credit card to purchase big ticket items.

U.S. Attorney Bill Ihlenfeld said that from May until November last year Carl Gaul, 40, and Shawn Ratliff, 35, used a credit card from the Federal Bureau of Prisons to purchase more than $13,000 of merchandise. They worked for the federal prison system at the time.

“They purchased these expensive items from places like Target, Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods,” Ihlenfeld said.

The items included a Sanyo 42” LED TV; two JBL Onbeat Awake devices; two IHOME devices; three Bose SoundLink systems; two Beats by Dre Beat Box devices and one JBL Flip device.

If convicted, Gaul and Ratliff face up to 15 years in prison.

    The criminals not only make the laws, they are running the institutions. The entire system, from top to bottom, is corrupt. That includes the US DOJ, starting with the Attorney General. There isn't a one of the underlings worthy of trust either.

      Gear down. These are two guys.

      • Dumb Liberals

        You seem to forget the 435 voting & 6 non-voting congress men & women, 100 senators and the m0r0n-n-thief and the band of henchmen and their subordinates. This is but the federal level. Then we have the states (all 57 according to the m0r0n) - the list grows.
