Ex-Army Inspector Accused Of Stealing Soldiers’ IDs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 11, 2013)--Former Fort Campbell inspector James Robert Jones, 42, of Woodlawn, Tenn., who was tasked with investigating misconduct, says allegations that he stole the identities of soldiers are ridiculous and "manufactured."

An indictment handed up Wednesday alleges Jones used his position as an assistant inspector general at the Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee line to obtain personal information on active-duty Army officers, some of whom were deployed to Afghanistan.

In an e-mail to The Associated Press on Thursday, Jones says he's not guilty of the charges and that he served with integrity.

The indictment alleges that Jones used the identifications of soldiers to apply for a $12,000 loan from Fort Campbell Federal Credit Union.
