ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say an American military contractor has been sentenced to 51 months in prison for her role in a theft ring on a military installation in Afghanistan.

A news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said 35-year-old Varita V. Quincy of Snellville, Georgia, admitted that she and others conspired to steal generators, a truck and other property worth more than $150,000 from a military installation in Kandahar.

A co-conspirator, Larry Green, negotiated the sale of the stolen property with a third-country national, and the middleman then facilitated the sale to unknown persons in Kandahar. Green was sentenced to 41 months last November.
