From the Glendale News-Press:

GLENDALE — Two Glendale residents were indicted Wednesday on charges that they allegedly billed more than $1.4 million in false claims to Medicare through fraudulent medical supply companies, officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles charged Edgar Srapyan, 26, and Mariya Bagdasaryan, 54, with conspiracy to commit health care fraud for allegedly submitting false claims for power wheelchairs and accessories to Medicare from October 2007 to December 2008.

Bagdasaryan was arrested Wednesday morning, but authorities are still looking for Srapyan, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Srapyan and Bagdasaryan were among 18 other people who were indicted for allegedly bilking Medicare for more than $26 million, Assistant U.S. Atty. Vince Farhat said.
