    Gunmaker Glock target of alleged plot to steal millions

    •
    MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Three men have been indicted for allegedly trying to steal $3 million from Austrian gunmaker Glock.
    The indictment handed down by an Atlanta-area grand jury Friday says the three men conspired from 2000 until early last year to steal the money.
    Jeffery Pombert, James Harper III and Jerry Chapman are charged with theft by taking and violation of a state racketeering law.
    The indictment says Harper worked as an outside legal counsel for Austrian-based Glock's U.S. headquarters in Smyrna, near Atlanta. It said the men transferred funds and assets from Glock to personal bank accounts they had set up.
    Harper and Pombert have been released from Cobb County jail on bond. Chapman was still in jail Tuesday.
    The company said Tuesday it has no comment.

    They must have read the rules wrong and thought it said "If you play you GET paid".

    I am glad that Glock went ahead a reported to the authorities, since lots of companies that in one way or another get hit with white collar crimes do not press charges, they do not want to be seen as irresponsible in the eye of the shareholders.:wow:

    I understand, but I'd think them irresponsible if they didn't report it.






    Not to mention I'd be rather pissed.

    Is it James R. Harper III? If so he used to be an Assistant United States Attorney in Atlanta. He prosecuted alot of my cases. Was a good prosecutor. Hope it's not the same one.

    ETA: It is the same one.

    When I took Ethics in law school I told the professor at the end of the course that the only thing we were taught was where "the line" was so we didn't cross it. In other words, we learned what we could get away with and how far we could go without incurring the wrath of the State Bar. Unfortunately, true ethics and "right" and "wrong" weren't part of the syllabus.
