Former USAF Member Sentenced for Stealing, Distributing Personal Info

CHICAGO — A former member of the United States Air Force was sentenced Aug. 2 to four years in federal prison for stealing the personal identifying information of fellow service members and distributing it to others.

On the eve of his dismissal from the military, Ronnie Allen II stole a personnel roster containing the names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and other personal identifying information of more than 1,400 Air Force members stationed at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho. Hoping to make money, Allen distributed the stolen information to others, including co-defendant Antorondi Benion. The Air Force members’ information was then fraudulently used to open accounts at various financial institutions, and to file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service in the names of the Air Force members.
