"CID is responsible for fully investigating allegations where credible evidence exists that a crime may have occurred," Mr. Grey said in an email. "Once the case is complete, an attorney conducts a probable cause review to determine the offenses believe to have been committed. In this case, an assistant U.S. attorney opined probable cause existed to believe the two soldiers committed the offenses of theft of government funds, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and conspiracy."
"We are aggressively pursuing the allegations," he said. "As with all of our criminal investigations, we take allegations of this nature very seriously and are determined to get to the truth."
