Rodney Nelson, 29 years old, and a resident of Dunkirk, Maryland has been sentenced to 2 years in prison for theft of government property while working as a civilian government pay technician from October 2008 to November 2013.

Mr. Nelson was employed by the Veterans Affairs Center and Joint Base Andrews, when his scheme was put into play. He stole approximately $311,874.84 from about 14 people, by manipulating payroll records. Money was diverted into bank accounts which he controlled. He made it look as though employees were receiving these monies.

Additionally, he replaced a former government employee’s bank information with his own banking information. He added over 2,000 hours of time to this individual’s payroll records, thereby receiving the deposited payments himself.
