Ex-Ft. Campbell Army inspector accused of stealing troops' IDs
A former Fort Campbell inspector whose job was to investigate misconduct has been accused of stealing the identities of Army personnel, including a soldier killed in combat, in a scheme to obtain thousands of dollars in bank loans. The indictment handed down Wednesday alleges 42-year-old James Robert Jones used his position as an assistant inspector general to obtain personal information on Army officers, some of whom were deployed to Afghanistan.
The federal indictment says Jones is accused of using the information - including Social Security numbers and dates of birth - to apply for loans in the officers’ names. Among those targeted was an enlisted soldier killed in combat in Afghanistan. Jones says he will plead not guilty to the charges.
