They became instant millionaires. CPT Jasen Minter and his finance SFC Lou Nock apparently thought they were going to get and stay rich.

Federal prosecutors tell MilitaryCorruption.com the two men, in 2006 members of the U.S. Military Training Mission in Saudi Arabia, took more than $2.7 million from Army funds earmarked for U.S. troops on deposit at the Saudi Arabian American Bank at Riyadh.

"They shipped the money back to the States" and used the stolen funds to "finance luxurious lifestyles back home," an investigator said
.

BOTH ACCUSED SAID TO HAVE "SPLIT" BIG BUCKS

The federal indictment in Atlanta, Ga. states the two ex-Army men split the proceeds evenly between them.

Some six years passed, but the long arm of the law finally reached out.

If convicted of conspiracy, both Minter and Nock face up to five years in the slammer. On theft charges, that would add ten years to their time behind bars. Minter, of Fayetteville, Ga. and Nock, who hails from Orlando, Fl., also could be hit with a $250,000 fine on each count.
