2 JBLM Soldiers Convicted In Army Equipment Thefts

 

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Two soldiers have been convicted in connection with the theft of more than $600,000 worth of weapons accessories from Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the Army is prosecuting a third soldier.

The News Tribune reports that the Army says it has recovered about 98 percent of the equipment, which included the latest rifle scopes, laser sights and night-vision goggles.

The Army has previously said it is prosecuting Pvt. Nicholas Solt of Slatington, Pa., on charges including larceny of military property and attempting to sell optical and targeting equipment.

The newspaper says 21-year-old Spc. Joshua Chandler was convicted in July in a military court of larceny of government property and conspiracy to commit larceny and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Spc. David Green pleaded guilty to charges of larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny. He was sentenced to one month of confinement, reduced in rank and given a bad-conduct discharge.
Army officials did not immediately return an Associated Press call for comment late Tuesday.
