Stolen Goods

An active duty Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Security Forces member was arrested Tuesday at his home in Huber Heights on charges of theft of government property, according to court documents filed in Dayton’s U.S. District Court and a federal prosecutor.

Zachary Sizemore allegedly sold at least 38 pieces of military equipment on eBay for $50,000 from July 2013 until November 2016. The most recent online sales were of night vision goggles and thermal monoculars, according to a complaint and affidavit written by an agent with the Dept. of Defense Criminal Investigative Service.

I wonder what they will do with all the eBay buyers? Will they try to recover the stolen items?

Yes they will.

Last I recall, the type we used on the aircraft were over $7500, so yea, I'm sure that they're gonna go after the buyers to get them back.

MP's and SP's are the best thieves in the military.

Oh, and in before there's only one thief in the military, everyone else is only trying to get their shit back.

Per the article, his last review stated that he "reconfigured" the arms room. Sounds like a handy way to adjust the inventory levels.

I did double check my ebay purchases (I should be gtg) but based on the articles I read about this guy the shit that he was selling should have been a red-flag to anyone with any sense. Generally I stay far away from guys selling gov't issued IR lasers and current issue thermals.

If it is current equipment, the government will recover, if it has been surpassed by newer stuff, the government will forget it and go on, in the mean time, this guy will probably end up doing more time than a person that murders someone.

The worst theft ring I saw were Air Force Cops who broke into the EOD offices and stole 200-300k worth of shit. One of their buddies snitched and they caught them trying to get out of the gate. Apparently they had been breaking into many offices over a few years because they had all the alarm codes from the base.

I don't know about that. I know someone that bought a bunch of expired MREs off eBay and the MPs came knocking and demanded them back.

I can beat that. Ft Hood MP's ran a motorcycle theft ring for almost a year on base. They would do all the stealing while on patrol in marked cars.

A friend of mine in Germany put a padlock on his roommates wall locker to help him out because he kept leaving his locker unlocked. Our SOP was get caught three times you get an Article 15. His roommate had already been written up twice, so when Angel saw it open again threw one of his spare locks on it and went to chow.

Asshole roommate called the MP's. Angel got two years at Leavenworth for theft of government property because asshole's LBE and helmet was in the locker. He got two years and a court martial for locking a wall locker

Lol. No way I would buy anything expensive like that on eBay. I figure 87% of that stuff is broken or stolen.

Former Marine Pleads Guilty To Theft Of $880,000 In Military Equipment From Department Of Defense

Defendant Sold Stolen Soldier Gear Online

Earlier today, at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, New York, Vincent P. Vulaj, a resident of Bronx, New York, pleaded guilty to Theft of Government Property. When sentenced on December 16, 2014, Vulaj faces up to 10 years in prison. The guilty plea was announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York and Jeremy Gauthier, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Northeast Field Office, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (“NCIS”).

According to court filings and facts presented during the plea proceeding, between 2009 and 2013, while working as a Staff Sergeant at the 2nd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, Marine Corps Reserves Base in Garden City, New York, Vulaj stole property belonging to the Department of Defense worth more than $880,000, and sold it on eBay.com. The stolen items included tactical helmets, goggles, jackets, vests, sleep systems and backpacks. The Marine Corps Reserves discovered the thefts and reported it to NCIS for investigation. NCIS investigators then purchased some of the stolen equipment online and traced the transactions back to Vulaj. In September 2013, Vulaj was discharged to Individual Ready Reserve (“IRR”) status with the Marine Corps Reserve. Individuals placed on IRR status are subject to recall to active military service.

I call bullshit. Either never happened or there is more to the story.
Link Posted: 12/5/2016 1:42:37 PM EST
The CID or FBI will come and ask nicely for them to be returned and that they know and understand that you are the victim and did not know that you were buying stolen military hardware. They will explain that if you refuse you risk prosecution because as of this moment you have been informed that you bought stolen government property and refuse to return it. 

I have paperwork from both organizations for items that I returned on two separate occasions. They have the serial numbers and copies of all correspondence. They give you a booklet and a phone number for an agency to call for therapy for being a victim of a crime perpetrated by someone in the military.
