WASHINGTON — The Justice Department Tuesday indicted three former financial services executives — Dominick P. Carollo, Steven E. Goldberg and Peter S. Grimm — on a total of 12 criminal counts for allegedly participating in wire fraud schemes and conspiracies in connection with the bidding for investment contracts for municipal bond proceeds over a seven-year period.

The indictment, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan and is the latest development in the Justice Department’s massive antitrust investigation of the municipal bond market, does not name the firms for which the three worked. It only calls the firms “Provider B” and describes them as “a group of separate financial services companies located in New York, N.Y.” that were “owned or controlled by a company headquartered in Fairfield, Conn.”
