SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a U.S. Army civilian employee working at a storage depot in Northern California is facing federal charges accusing him of trying to smuggle sophisticated military equipment recently returned from Afghanistan and Iraq that had been shipped to the facility. The Sacramento Bee reports that federal court documents say Devon Gregory Biggs Jr. is accused of trying to smuggle nearly $85,000 worth of equipment from the Sierra Army Depot in Lassen County. Authorities say the 36-year-old Biggs was the lead employee at the base and was in charge of receiving and categorizing military gear returned from overseas. Court documents say it is unknown how long the alleged thefts took place. Biggs was taken into custody last week after law enforcement officials said he was seen taking several items out of a warehouse. Biggs is due back in court on April 26.
