BARKING SANDS — The U.S. Pacific Fleet on Oahu is still putting together the pieces of how a woman allegedly stole nearly $356,000 from the Navy’s Pacific Missile Range Facility.
Charged with wire fraud, the woman, whose name The Garden Island has yet to confirm, allegedly used her position in the Defense Travel System to move money to personal accounts, KHON and Hawaii News Now reported Monday.
The woman allegedly falsified travel documents and wired money from Hawaii to Virginia from January 2011 through January 2017, news outlets reported.
Wednesday, PMRF Commanding Officer Capt. Vincent Johnson told The Garden Island the woman was fired from PMRF before he became the commanding officer in August 2016.
