Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Texas Soldier Charged in Nearly $1M Theft - TIME: "(SAN ANTONIO) — A soldier who kept inventory at an Army warehouse has been charged with using his position to order and stockpile military musical instruments and equipment that he sold for nearly $1 million.

Jerome Matthew Goldick, a chief warrant officer 3, was indicted last week on seven charges of theft of government property. He allegedly ordered more than 4,000 surplus guitars, amplifiers and other equipment from military facilities around the world between 2005 and last year, according to affidavits unsealed this week.

Goldick, 41, then allegedly sold the stockpile, sometimes using eBay, Craigslist and other online outlets. He allegedly used the proceeds on real estate, cars and motorcycles."

I read a book like that. By Lee Child, maybe?

Sounds like a good candidate.
