DALLAS (AP) - A man has been sentenced to federal prison for stealing about 16,000 identities — including those of U.S. soldiers — and using their credit cards.

Rene Quimby was sentenced Thursday to more than six years behind bars and ordered to pay more than $210,000 in restitution. The 42-year-old pleaded guilty in May to fraud and aggravated identity theft.

Prosecutors say Quimby used the stolen identities to buy computers, digital cameras and appliances from the website of the Army and Air Force Exchange Service in 2007. Quimby had the merchandise sent to addresses in southern California, then sold it.

Dallas-based AAFES owns and operates thousands of retail stores on military installations worldwide. The money it generates is used to fund programs that help troops, including those in war zones.
