Delmus Eugene Scott Jr.: Working An Army Post Office In Kuwait, Sending Back $500K In Stolen Money Orders to Humble

A Houston-area man has been arrested for allegedly sending more than $500,000 in stolen money orders to a bank in Humble.

Delmus Eugene Scott Jr., 34, was a civilian employee at the Camp Buehring Post Office in Kuwait from January 2008 until June 2010. His job included overseeing finances and money orders, and the U.S. Attorney's Office said he did more than just oversee.

Between December 2009 and June 2010, the USAO says, Scott send hundreds of money orders totaling at least $565,000 "to an account controlled by his then fiancée' and/or his personal bank account" at a Humble bank.

The bank contacted law enforcement authorities about the heavy traffic of $1,000 money orders from Kuwait, the USAO says.

He was arrested today in Jefferson County and will be arraigned tomorrow.
