Army Officer Pled Guilty to Federal Charges; Sentenced to Prison

Federal law enforcement requested NICB assist them with an investigation of an Army officer who  had made several bank deposits that appeared to be insurance settlements.  NICB identified close to $400,000 in claim settlements paid to the officer over nearly a two-and-a-half-year period.  Investigation indicated the officer may have been purchasing jewelry, performance bicycles, electronics, etc.; returning the item(s) or cancelling the order; and making claims that the item(s) were lost or stolen.  The officer pled guilty to federal charges of Mail Fraud, Wire Fraud, and Money Laundering; was sentenced to serve one year in prison; and was ordered to pay over $375,000 in restitution.
