US Contractor Gets 51 Months In Prison For Stealing Truck From American Base In Afghanistan

Kabul: Varita Quincy, 35, from Snellville, Georgia, has been sentenced to 51 months in prison and has been ordered to pay restitution of $179,708, for conspiring to steal property including generators, a truck and other items worth over $150,000 from a military installation in Kandahar between April and July of 2015, according to US federal prosecutors.

Quincy pleaded guilty to her crimes on October 13, 2020, to conspiracy to defraud the US and commit property theft. She also pleaded guilty to making false statements.

Co-conspirator Larry Green of Chesapeake, Virginia, negotiated the sale of the stolen property with a third-country national middleman who then facilitated the sale to unknown persons in Kandahar, the press release stated.

Quincy also admitted to using her position to create or cause the production of false official documents. These documents led to the property theft by allowing unknown and unvetted Afghan nationals and their vehicles onto the military installation, deceiving security officers and gate guards and compromising the security of US military and civilian personnel.
