Microsoft ID theft suspect now charged by US Army

Microsoft ID theft suspect now charged by US Army

A U.S. man charged by the FBI with stealing the identity of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen will first face desertion charges filed at the Army base where he's stationed.
Major Lewis Kliem tells The Associated Press that 28-year-old Brandon Lee Price is charged with illegally leaving his unit at Fort Polk in early July 2010 and wasn't found by the Army until he was charged by the FBI last month.
Kliem says Price isn't in custody.
Investigators in the identity theft case say Price changed the address on a bank account held by Allen, then had a debit card sent to his Pittsburgh home.
