MOBILE, AL (WSFA) -

Four family members of Alabama's Secretary of Law Enforcement are now indicted on charges related to BP oil spill claims fraud.

Spencer Collier serves as Alabama's Law Enforcement Secretary and as Homeland Security Director for Alabama.

Indicted are the secretary's son, Christopher Collier; his brother, Harvey Collier; his ex-sister-in-law, Tonya Collier; and his nephew, Wayne Collier. No photo was immediately available of Wayne Collier.

Secretary Collier was not named in the indictment.

Prosecutors say all four family members made fraudulent claims of lost wages in relation to the 2010 BP oil spill that totaled more than $1,000. Each is also accused of mail fraud.

All four have pleaded not guilty.
