Henderson man sentenced for selling stolen military ammo

A Henderson man was sentenced today to 18 months in prison for selling stolen U.S. Air Force ammunition, smoke grenades and other equipment, Steven W. Myhre, acting U.S. attorney for the District of Nevada, announced.

Temogen Tran Noguni, 38, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in August to one count of unauthorized sale of U.S. property, officials said. He also was sentenced to two years of supervised release.

Two co-defendants, one of them a sergeant at Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas, previously pleaded guilty to criminal charges, officials said.

According to a plea agreement, Noguni admitted that from August to November 2015, he bought materials from the sergeant stolen from Nellis, including ammunition, smoke grenades, body armor vests, a rifle scope, and night-vision binoculars and goggles. Ammunition included .50-caliber armor-piercing, incendiary rounds not available to the public, officials said.

Noguni subsequently listed the items for sale on the internet, officials said.
