Second soldier admits to stealing, selling jet fuel in Afghanistan

A second Schofield Barracks soldier has admitted stealing and selling thousands of gallons of jet fuel when he was deployed in Afghanistan earlier this year.

Sgt. Regionald O. Dixon pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court today to bribery. He faces maximum penalties of 15 years in prison and $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in October. He must also pay restitution and will forfeit the $37,500 federal agents seized from him in Jalalabad, Afghanistan in February and the $13,700 he tried to send out of the country by FedEx, which Homeland Security officials intercepted.

Dixon, 30, was assigned to A Company, 325th Brigade Support Battalion in Forward Operating Base Fenty in Jalalabad.
