TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A former Army private stationed at Fort Riley is accused of stealing his fellow soldiers’ identities and obtaining credit in their names.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Todd M. Newbrough was charged Wednesday with wire fraud, bank fraud, aggravated identity theft and computer fraud.

Prosecutors say Newbrough obtained personal identifying information through his access of Leave and Earning Statements, Enlisted Record Brief and Alpha Roster records.

A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says Newbrough was taken into custody Thursday but has not made an initial court appearance. No bond has been set and it wasn’t immediately clear if he had obtained an attorney.

If convicted, Newbrough faces a maximum of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine on each wire and bank fraud charge.
