The FBI announced Wednesday the arrests of 10 more suspects connected to an alleged billion-dollar fraud of the Long Island Rail Road's pension system.
Investigators say hundreds of people may have paid off doctors to say they were unable to work, allowing them to illegally collect big pensions.
Authorities say some supposedly disabled retirees were seen playing tennis, shoveling snow and working out at a gym.
The LIRR blames a federal agency for acting as a rubber stamp for the defrauders.
