HAMMOND — Federal prosecutors say 27 carpenters have been ordered to repay more than $500,000 to their union after pleading guilty to health care theft.
U.S. Attorney Thomas Kirsch of the Northern District of Indiana said Monday the 27 members of the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters were order to repay a total of $531,000.

Prosecutors did not release additional details about the thefts.
