I had a barracks roommate steal $1300 from me. I had just arrived to my first duty station while in the Navy, and was randomly assigned a roommate. The day I arrived I found the room in a disgusting mess, with trash, dirty clothes, and a large dried up kool-aid stain on the floor. The roommate showed up briefly and told me to pick a bed and just move her stuff to the other one, then disappeared. (It was a room with two beds, a small kitchenette, and a bathroom.) I picked a bed, started moving her stuff, and discovered disgusting, crusty underwear stuffed between the wall and the bed. Ick. I finished unpacking then went out with some friends. When I got back to the room that first night I discovered all of my things thrown all around the room. After a few days I saw the roommate again and asked her about it, and she claimed that her boyfriend had gone by the room to look for something and freaked out about my stuff. I let it go, and for several months hardly ever saw her as she stayed in her boyfriend’s room. Then one night after I got off work, I was getting ready to take a shower when she tried to get in (I had put the chain on in case she came by so she wouldn’t see me naked). I wrapped up in a towel and let her in, then ran back into the bathroom. She was there with a friend, gathering up some clothes, and left soon after I got out of the shower. I didn’t think anything of it. The next morning I was getting ready for work and couldn’t find my bank card, which I thought I had left in a neat little pile with my ID and security badge the night before on the desk. After work that night I tore the room apart trying to find my card, but couldn’t find it anywhere. The next day I got online to check my bank account and discovered $1300 gone! Long story short, the roommate had stolen my card, taken the money out, then flew back home with her boyfriend. She had an Unauthorized Absence from the Navy which turned into her being AWOL when September 11th happened, her friend that had been in my room with her turned against and testified to the NCIS about the theft, and to top it off, the stupid idiot had somehow discovered my PIN number and used ATMs to take my money, which all had cameras. Months went by when she suddenly showed up at the room to get the rest of her things. I asked her what the hell she was doing there after she’d stolen my money, she gave me some bitchy reply, and I called base security who arrested her and her boyfriend - they had turned themselves in at another base and were being sent back to face their AWOL charges, but were able to sneak back on base without anyone knowing and were trying to get the rest of their crap to take off again. Stupid bitch was slapped with a larceny charge on top of being AWOL, went to court martial, sent to the brig (Navy prison) for 30 days, and given a dishonorable discharge. Plus I got all of my money back. Fun times.
