WACO, Texas (AP) — A former Army contractor in Iraq who helped to steal and sell more than $2.6 million in U.S. military property must serve nearly four years in prison.
Stacey B. Hines pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and to theft of government property.
Hines, of Lacey, Washington, was employed by Raytheon and assigned to Camp Taji (TAH’-jee) in 2012 and 2013 when eight cargo containers filled with vehicle and machine parts, computers and communications equipment went missing.
Officials in Baghdad recovered the containers and property from two Iraqi citizens.
