GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Two former Navy workers have been ordered to make restitution for their roles in a conspiracy to defraud the Department of Defense with a false travel-claim scheme that involved tens of thousands of dollars.

The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1frh5Z1 ) Richard Stephen Bellock, of Alquippa, Pa., received a prison term of 70 months and three years' probation at his sentencing in federal court Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden also ordered Bellock to help others repay $163,000.

The judge sentenced Iralen Jewell, Grand Junction, Colo., to help others repay $10,000. The judge fined Jewell $500 and ordered three years of probation.

Bellock and Jewell had a rank of logistics specialist 1st class when they were stationed at the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, Miss.
