The L.A. Times is reporting that three Cudahy city officials -- Mayor David Silva, Councilman Osvaldo Conde and city employee Angel Perales -- have been indicted on federal bribery charges for soliciting and accepting $17,000 from an individual looking to open a medical marijuana shop.

FBI officials descended on the city Friday morning, according to the newspaper, however it was unclear if the men were taken into custody.

Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the United States Attorney's Office in Los Angeles, confirmed with KPCC that three men had been indicted, saying further details were to follow as "law enforcement operations continue."
