NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Federal prosecutors in New York say a soldier who stole night vision technology from Fort Bliss in El Paso and sold it online was sentenced to six months in prison.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn says Johnathan Serrano was sentenced Tuesday for conspiring to sell more than $120,000 worth of Army equipment.
Prosecutors say Serrano stole night vision technology components between April 2014 and May 2015. They say he got his cousin and another person to sell the items on eBay.
Serrano pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to steal and sell government property.
He’ll spend four months in home confinement after his release from prison. He also was ordered to pay $67,000 in restitution to the Army and forfeit $10,200 in criminal proceeds.
