National Guard sergeant charged with selling equipment
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont National Guard supply sergeant has pleaded not guilty to charges that he sold military equipment online that had been shipped to the Rutland armory.
Federal court records say Ammon Yule, who was indicted last week, entered the plea Wednesday.
The U.S. Attorney’s office says the 42-year-old Yule was released pending trial.
The six-count indictment says that from March 2017 until March 2018 Yule ordered equipment, including dozens of duffel bags, parkas and boots, from a military equipment distribution center in Kentucky and then sold them on eBay.
An attorney for Yule did not return a call seeking comment.
Guard Capt. Mikel Arcovitch says the guard has investigated the allegations against Yule and has “taken appropriate action.” He would not release Yule’s current duty status.
