Army captain pleads innocent

March 06, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An Army captain accused of stealing nearly $700,000 from the U.S. government while serving in Iraq pleaded not guilty to charges including theft of government property and money laundering.

Capt. Michael Dung Nguyen, 28, is accused of stealing more than $690,000 entrusted to him as the battalion civil affairs officer in Muqdadiyah, Iraq, between April 2007 and Feb. 24. A federal grand jury indictment in Portland alleges Nguyen used some of the money to buy two new vehicles, along with computers, electronics and furniture.
