ARMY INSPECTOR-ID THEFT
Ex-Army inspector pleads guilty to stealing IDs of fellow soldiers to obtain fraudulent loans
Reported by: Associated Press

A former Army post inspector whose job it was to investigate misconduct has pleaded guilty to stealing the identities of other officers to obtain bank loans and trying to blame his crimes on a deceased officer.
According to the plea agreement, Jones used the information to open bank accounts in the soldiers' names and apply for $72,000 in loans.
After he was indicted last year, Jones told The Associated Press in an email that he was innocent and called the allegations "shocking."
Sentencing is set for August 11.
