A Superior Court of Guam grand jury has indicted a fourth government official for credit-card related offences this year.

The former Guam airport manager, Gerald Yingling, was indicted for fraudulent use of a credit card and official misconduct.

The indictment stems from personal expenses totalling more than 12-thousand US dollars that Yingling charged to a government issued creditcard.

The expenses included a visit to a Las Vegas strip-club.

If convicted Yingling faces up to 18 years in prision and 22-thousand dollars in fines.
