Fuel Thieves Busted Defrauding U.S. Army in Iraq

November 29, 2009

Former Army officers conspired to steal fuel from the U.S. Army in Iraq, says the DoJ.  They snuck into the Victory Bulk Fuel Point in Camp Victory, Iraq using false documents and posing as Government contractors.  Over the course of several months, the gang stole hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel and employed others to serve as escorts and drivers to haul the fuel to its eventual destination for sale on the middle eastern blackmarket.  One of the men was convicted at trial, and his three co-conspirators pled guilty.
