Brothers Sentenced For Stealing From Camp Lejeune

Two West Virginia brothers have been sentenced for stealing rifle scopes and other military optics from the U.S. Marine Corps and selling it to overseas customers.

U.S. Attorney Charles Miller's office says 21-year-old Joseph Oldani received a 21-month prison term Monday, while 24-year-old Timothy Oldani received a five-month term.

The Scott Depot residents had pleaded guilty in February.

Joseph Oldani admitted that while on active duty with the Marines at Camp Lejeune, N.C., he stole rifle scopes, infrared target pointers and other gear and transported them to his brother, who is a former Marine.

Federal prosecutors say Timothy Oldani sold the items online to customers in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.

    Thankfully it is what they claim, the few, the proud, the marines. Should have gone army! The problem is recruiters are getting desparate now and recruiting thugs off the street that only join because either they want a free meal along with any other freebies they can get or they see it as an opportunity to steal for money or to supoport their hommies in the hood with potential weapons they can steal, or money from the sales.

    These two thugs should ordered to go back to Iraq or Afghanistan, and then dropped off in enemy territories, without any weapons, food, water. This really gives the good Marines a bad name.
