Ten Houston-area law enforcement officers have been accused of billing two agencies for the same hours worked.

A grand jury indicted five Harris County deputy constables on Tuesday on theft and record-tampering counts. District attorney's spokeswoman Sara Marie Kinney says the Harris County grand jury indicted five other deputy constables on the same counts earlier this month.

The indictment accused the deputies of claiming hours worked as their deputy constables while also claiming the same hours worked as security for the Houston Housing Authority.
