Ex-Army inspector accused of stealing troops' IDs

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former Fort Campbell inspector whose job was to investigate misconduct has been charged with stealing the identities of fellow Army personnel, including a soldier who had been killed in combat.

Jones was an assistant inspector general at Fort Campbell along the Kentucky-Tennessee line.

The indictment claims Jones used his position to obtain Social Security numbers, dates of birth and other personal information of active-duty Army officers. Some of them were deployed to Afghanistan at the time.

The federal grand jury said Jones obtained fraudulent loans under the victims' names.
