NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- A 52-year-old Ohio man has been sentenced to two years in prison for stealing a Navy uniform as well as transporting a stolen vehicle across state lines.
Michael R. Jacobs was sentenced in federal court in Norfolk on Thursday.
Prosecutors say Jacobs stole the uniform from a Navy Exchange to impersonate an admiral. He first got the attention of Navy investigators when other sailors noticed him wearing the uniform incorrectly at Naval Air Station Oceana.
The vehicle theft was from an unrelated case. Prosecutors say he took a vehicle from a San Antonio, Texas, dealership in 2010 for a test drive and never returned it. Eventually, he brought the vehicle to Virginia.
Jacobs pleaded guilty to the charges in March.
