Fort Bragg Soldiers Jailed For Selling Drugs And Body Armor

Two 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers are in jail, accused of selling drugs and body armor to an undercover F-B-I agent.

Court records say the 18-year-old privates offered to sell a military Humvee and a cannon.

Twenty-one-year-old Joffre Cross and 18-year-old Jason Scott Niewoit are charged with selling stolen government property.

The court records show Cross and Niewoit met an undercover F-B-I
agent May 24th in Concord. The records say the men first offered to
sell medical supplies, which the agent didn't buy. They say Cross then offered a desert-camouflage bullet-resistant vest with protective plates and a helmet.

The agent agreed to buy both for 900 dollars and also bought medical drugs.

Attorneys for the men would --not-- talk about the charges.
