Stolen Navy SEAL gear recovered

| November 28, 2013

Mary sends us a link to the Cliffview Pilot which reports that NCIS has recovered more than a million bucks worth of special equipment designed to support Navy SEALs that was on it’s way to South Korea;

Police also seized camouflage parkas that the sergeant said the defendants were buying for $100 each and then re-selling for $350 to customers in South Korea.

They also found military boots — bought for $50 and sold for $300 — and wide-rimmed “boonie” hats bound for the Far East.

“The kids over there are wearing that stuff. It’s the fad,” Williams said.

The case began when agents from the Naval Criminal Investigation Service in Quantico, Va., busted a ring that was stealing and then fencing the items online.

Some of the equipment had been swiped from a Navy SEALS yard near Williamsburg, Va., Williams said.

Three thieves are awaiting trial for the caper; Jay Nusbacher, 41, Suk Dong Kim, 46, and Seong “Steve” Park, 44. I don’t know if that second guy’s name is real, though. But he should get his parents thrown in jail for saddling him with that moniker which probably made him a criminal.

Oh, a word of advice, don’t sell your stolen goods to cops – that never ends well.

    Helluva name to have in jail. Guess you really are what you eat!

  2. David Clement says:

    I suspect that his alias was Sum Dum Fook.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Does Gibbs know about this?

  4. O-4E says:

    Ho Ree Fuk

  5. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Really. One of suspects name was “Suc Dong”.

    Can’t make that up!

  6. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    Oh … So sor ree. I miss spelled that, it is “Suk Dong”.

    I hope the correction clarifies the Korean’s name when translated means, “man who sucks cock willingly”.

  7. UpNorth says:

    Suk Dong Kum? BwaHaHaHaHa. I can hear his cell mates calling his name now.

  8. A Proud Infidel says:

    Regardless of his name, he’ll soon be “Just anothel rittre PIGGY!”.

  9. Green Thumb says:

    I wonder if it was an APL contract?

  10. A Proud Infidel says:

    DAMN, coulda been!

  11. NRPax says:

    “don’t sell your stolen goods to cops – that never ends well.”

    Then there is the follow up question: “How do you know that they are cops? They want to buy your stolen goods.”

  12. NHSparky says:

    Won Hung Lo in that group?

  13. MrBill says:

    Don’t forget Long Wang.

    @11, that reminds me of a friend’s DS/DS war story. Some M88 Crewman at Ft. Stewart (Then the 24th ID) decided to get into the arms business while deployed smuggled five field stripped AK’s back Stateside in the gear oil tank of his vehicle. He smuggled them to his house, reassembled them, took one to a gun show, and sold it to a plainclothes BATF Agent.
    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. When one is selling stolen goods or drugs, they never know either who is going to rat them out or if they’re dealing with undercover LE!

    @14 Had the M88 crewman stayed around he might have gotten to spend some time in a Saudi jail. While closing out Log Base Echo I must have been approached at least 20 times by Arabs wanting to know if I had guys to sell. I’ve always suspected they were undercover security (even though the nomads had started moving back into the area) because of all the green and white helicopters keeping an eye on us as we went around picking up concertina wire, recovering abandoned equipment and closing trash pits. (Yes, Virginia, the Army even does police call in the desert.) I never had any guns, so there never was any temptation, but the experience didn’t leave me with a favorable impression of the locals.

  16. CC Senor says:

    Er, make that guns to sell, not guys, although I’m sure they wouldn’t have turned down a young boy or two.

  17. The guys name is probably real. When I was stationed in Korea, we had a guy in our unit who had a “Yobo” girlfriend whose real name was Oh Kum Suk. He was ragged on mercilessly.

  18. A Proud Infidel says:

    That reminds me of the “Mi Suk Oriental Restaurant ” downrange from Fort Lost-in-the-Woods, MO when I was a wet-behind-the-ears “Joe” in Boot Camp & AIT!

    Have you guys seen the Asiana Airlines pilot names prank? Maybe the funniest thing I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. Here’s the YouTube link:

    Remember that South Korean airliner that crashed in SF last summer? The NTSB is keeping the pilots’ names secret until they wrap up the investigation, but a summer intern at FAA prank called KTVU and gave them the “pilots” names, which they then reported immediately as fact on the evening news. Just watch it. You may need a new keyboard, but it will be worth it.

  20. HS Sophomore says:

    Also-I can’t figure it out, why does anyone wear cammies and such as a civilian in public? Am I the only person who thinks walking around in BDUs looks totally stupid? I suppose these folks probably think that wearing Air Jordans makes them an NBA star, too. Wannabes the lot of them.

    Yep, incident was covered here…
