Weapons manufacturer Capco, LLC has agreed to pay over $1 million to resolve fraud allegations raised by its former quality engineer, James Cole.  According to Cole, from 2016 to 2018, the company knowingly certified that M320 grenade launchers sold to the U.S. Army were manufactured in compliance with contract specifications, when in fact a critical component had been manufactured using the wrong type of steel.  Capco also failed to disclose the issue despite conducting an internal investigation.  For bringing the issue to light, Cole will receive approximately $235,000 of the recovery.
