COURT WATCH: Former Marine Commander Faces Shoplifting Charge

The shoplifting case against a former Camp Lejeune commander has been continued until next month.

Colonel Robert Petit is accused of stealing two printer cartridges and a bottle of STP gas treatment from WalMart in January.

On February 5th, the Marine Corps announced Petit was being relieved of command as head of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command.

Petit was supposed to appear today on the charges in district court, but that case was continued until April 26th.
