By The Staff

A former U.S. Army automotive mechanic and Hodgenville resident pleaded guilty last week to thefts from Fort Knox.

Bobby William Fultz was employed by the Army to repair vehicles used to train soldiers at Fort Knox.

With his plea, Fultz admitted to stealing $5,000 to $10,000 worth of MREs, tools, petroleum products and other property from the post during his employment there between 2004 and 2008.

He’s due to be sentenced May 25 in Kentucky’s Western District of U.S. District Court in Louisville.

The case was investigated by Army Criminal Investigation Division and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Raymond R. Adams.
