    SALT LAKE CITY — An Army Reserve lieutenant colonel and two former Special Forces soldiers were indicted Wednesday in a multimillion-dollar fraud scheme to win military contracts in Afghanistan.
    The 72-count indictment was returned Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Salt Lake City.
    The active Army reservist indicted in the case was a procurement official who leaked bid information that allowed all three men to pocket $20 million from a series of contracts that grew to $54 million, U.S. Attorney David Barlow said.
