SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A second former civilian worker at a Northern California U.S. Army installation has been charged with stealing sophisticated military gear.
The U.S. Attorney’s office announced Tuesday that it has charged Tony Herrin of Reno, Nevada with two counts of conspiracy to steal and sell government property. He is accused of helping his former supervisor Devon Biggs to steal military gear from the Sierra Army Depot in remote Lassen County.
The depot processes “non-standard equipment” returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Biggs was arrested last year after investigators recorded him allegedly smuggling nearly $85,000 worth of equipment, including night vision equipment, scopes and components of a fully automatic assault rifle.
Biggs has pleaded not guilty.
No attorney was listed for Herrin and he could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.
