Ex-Fort Riley Soldier Accused of Stealing Fellow Soldiers’ Identities

A former U.S. Army private, stationed at Fort Riley, has been indicted on charges of stealing his fellow soldiers’ identities.  Federal prosecutors say Todd M. Newbrough was charged Wednesday with four counts of wire fraud, four counts of bank fraud, four counts of aggravated identity theft and one count of computer fraud. The crimes are alleged to have occurred at various times from 2011 to 2015 at Fort Riley.  The U.S. Attorney for Kansas, Barry Grissom, says the indictment alleges Newbrough used personal identifying information of fellow soldiers to obtain lines of credit and credit cards in their names. He got the information through his access to Leave and Earning Statements and other military records.  If convicted, Newbrough faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in federal prison and a fine up to $1 million on each wire fraud and each bank fraud count.  He also faces a mandatory consecutive two years on the aggravated identity theft counts and a maximum penalty of five years and a fine up to $250,000 on the computer fraud count. The Army Criminal Investigation Division investigated.
