Mary sends us a link to The Blaze which reports that Eugene Storley, who is told the media that he was a Marine and stopped a bank robbery in Florida (we talked about him last week) was himself a bank robber in the 1970s;
Storley told multiple news outlets he is a Marine Corps veteran and former Miami police officer, but as the Space Coast Daily reported Saturday, not only is there no record of Storley as a Florida law enforcement officer, he pleaded guilty to bombing a bank in New Jersey in the 1970s:
A Federal Agent refuted Storley’s claims of service as a U.S. Marine Veteran and law enforcement officer. The agent also detailed Storley’s conviction for the bombing of the National State Bank in Trenton, New Jersey in 1977. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said they have no record of Storley ever being a law enforcement officer in the state of Florida.
So, we’re looking for his records now, and Mary couldn’t find him in her database of Vietnam veterans.
