RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- A Reno resident has been arrested for allegedly stealing and selling government property.

Officials allege 36-year-old Tony Herrin took military equipment from the depot in Lassen County, and sold the property numerous times between January and April of last year. He was arrested on Monday for Conspiracy to Steal and Sell Government Property, along with Theft and Sale of Government Property.

According to an indictment obtained by News 4, Herrin and fellow civilian employee Devon Biggs stole equipment and adjusted item codes in the computer database to cover up the thefts. Herrin’s job with Sierra Army Depot included cataloging U.S. military equipment into computer databases.

The U.S. Department of Justice said the men once loaded a military car with stolen property, and drove just beyond the depot parking lot for a pre-arranged sale.

Herrin will appear in a Reno courtroom on Monday, while Biggs is scheduled for district court in September. If convicted, Herrin faces up to 15 years in prison, along with fines totaling $500,000.

Dumbass! Put him away for a long time, and fine his ass big time! Then track down all his sales, and do the same to them.
