LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan National Guard investigation into alleged wrongdoing at the Camp Grayling military training base recommended the removal of seven people, including two lieutenant colonels.

The Detroit Free Press reports Monday the investigation alleges theft, destruction of government property and nepotism at an equipment maintenance facility at the base in northern Lower Michigan.

The investigation was completed in January, and the report was turned over to the National Guard’s criminal division.

Base spokesman Lt. Col. Bill Humes says the criminal division concluded earlier this summer that no criminal investigation was warranted.

According to Humes, two lieutenant colonels retired, two master sergeants were fired from their full-time federal government jobs at the base, two other sergeants received two weeks of unpaid leave and one master sergeant was not disciplined.
