NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a U.S. Navy sailor who authorities say assumed the identities of members of his command to fraudulently obtain loans.

Clayton A. Pressley of Chesapeake was indicted Wednesday on charges of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft and unlawfully possessing identity documents.

Authorities say Pressley, a senior enlisted sailor, stole personal identity information and documents for two sailors he was in charge of and pretended to be them to get loans. They say identity documents for eight other members of his military command were found at his home.

Pressley’s attorney, Bruce Sams, did not immediately return a request for comment on Wednesday.
