Camp Lejeune Marines Plead Guilty To Military Thefts

Two brothers have pleaded guilty to stealing rifle scopes and other equipment from the U.S. Marine Corps and selling it to overseas customers.

The Justice Department says 24-year-old Timothy Oldani of Scott Depot, Va., and 21-year-old Joseph Oldani of Camp Lejeune, N.C.,
pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Huntington.

Joseph admitted that while on active duty with the Marines, he stole military optics -- rifle scopes, infrared target pointers and other gear -- and transported them to Timothy, himself a former Marine.

Timothy sold the items on the Internet to customers in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.

The brothers each face up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 in
fines. Their sentencing is scheduled for May 18.
