Ex-Army Inspector Accused Of Stealing Troops' IDs In Loan Scam


As every police scandal everywhere shows, sometimes the upholders of law and decency can be the worst offenders.

The latest culprit may be James Robert Jones, 42, a former assistant inspector general at Fort Campbell, Ky., who was tasked with investigating misconduct. According to a federal indictment, Jones used his position to steal the identities of active duty soldiers -- including one who was killed in combat -- in order to obtain thousands of dollars of fraudulent bank loans, reports The Associated Press.
