San Diego Sailor Says He Sold Stolen Military Equipment on EBay
Former San Diego Sailor Phillip Andro Jamison had a lot of audacity, and I don't mean that in a good way. The 31-year-old Jamison was a Gunner's Mate Petty Officer 1st Class stationed at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado and managed expensive military equipment, according to NBC San Diego. But he took advantage of the military's trust in him, and permanently borrowed gear like rifle scopes, night gear, and tactical flashlights. He then turned around and sold the stolen booty on the auction website eBay. NBC San Diego says the Navy didn't realize the gear was gone until more than a year later.
Well, yesterday the charade ended when Jamison pleaded guilty to stealing and selling the equipment. According to 10News:
As part of his plea, Jamison will have to repay the Navy $170,000 and could face up to 10 years in prison when he's sentenced by Judge Marilyn Huff in August.
