RALEIGH, N.C. A former Fort Bragg soldier has pleaded guilty to working with another military member to steal more than $1 million in government property, including equipment used to locate and designate targets for laser-guided munitions.

Federal authorities said 36-year-old Robert Alan Walker pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring to steal U.S. property and theft of government property. Walker is tentatively scheduled to be sentenced in February.

He was a sergeant first class assigned to the 18th Airborne Corps who was deployed to Afghanistan. Authorities said that between December 2010 and July 28, 2011, he worked with an unindicted member of the military to steal property that was shipped back to the U.S. through Air Force channels. Items included a lightweight laser designator rangefinder valued at more than $290,000 and an all-terrain vehicle.
