A US Navy petty officer reportedly stole money from the admiral in command of a carrier strike group- as well as leaving his carrier without permission.

Yeoman 2nd Class Cameron Kay was charged in March after stealing $500 from the account of Carrier Strike Group 1 Commander Rear Admiral John Fuller by misusing his government travel card.

Kay also left the USS Carl Vinson without permission, disappearing in December of last year until he was taken into custody in February of 2019.

According to the Navy Times, Kay has been held in confinement since February 5, and his lawyer declined to comment.

Commissioned in 1982, the Carl Vinson (CVN-70) is more famously known as the ship that Osama bin Laden’s body was dumped from during a 2011 burial at sea, following his death at the hands of US Navy SEALs.
