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.
