A woman and her ex-husband are accused of using credit cards intended to gas up vehicles at Fort Monroe, and instead siphoning nearly $300,000 worth of fuel for their vehicles and others at cut rate prices.
The Daily Press of Newport News reports that 36-year-old Coleen Newton-White pleaded innocent Tuesday in U.S. District Court. Lanarie E. White is being sought on an arrest warrant.
Newton-White was a dispatcher for a fleet of 68 Army vehicles at the Hampton base.
According to an indictment, the two helped others get bargain fuel prices after purchasing the fuels with government credit cards.
They are charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, fraud and theft of government property.
