Man Charged With Using Fake ID at CAFB


LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A Lowndes County man is tracked down more than a year after detectives say he used stolen gift cards to bilk the Columbus Air Force Base exchange out of $2,600.

Robert Edward Cole, 21, was arrested Friday on a year-old indictment and charged with two counts of fraudulent use of an I.D.

Court records show a friend of Cole’s apparently stole the gift cards and he used them twice on the base. No bond has been set.
