3 ex-Marine Corp clerks plead guilty in San Diego

Legal Insight Posted on

Three former civilian contractors at Camp Pendleton have pleaded guilty to stealing more than $3 million worth of medical equipment that was headed to combat zones, including Afghanistan.

Henry Bonilla of Pomona, Richard Navarro of Fallbrook and Michael Tuisse of Oceanside pleaded guilty in federal court in San Diego Thursday to a single count of conspiring to steal government property. The Los Angeles Times says each man faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when sentenced May 24.

Federal prosecutors say the men took ultrasound machines, defibrillators, ventilators and broken bone kits from the 1st Medical Logistics Company where they worked.

Court documents say the men would load equipment in their cars, and then meet up with buyers after dark in secluded parking lots.
