Where's My Inheritance?
Oh, what has our Navy come to? MilitaryTimes.com and the San Diego Union-Tribune are reporting that Lt. Milton T. Guy, disbursing officer for the frigate McClusky, pled guilty on June 26 to stealing between $120,000 and $140,000 from the ship’s safe. Most of the money was used as payments to a Nigerian Internet scam so he could collect a $260,000 “inheritance.” But all was not lost, he evidently used some of the funds to buy a computer and make down payments on a car and a house. Although the article is not clear, it appears Lt Guy received a dismissal, confinement for 28 months, and a $14,000 fine.
