ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Navy veteran who worked in the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base medical clinic pleads guilty to stealing more than a million dollars worth of insulin from the clinic pharmacy and selling it on E-bay.

Anthony Olson pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and filing false tax returns in Albany Federal Court.

Prosecutors say from 2005 to 2009 Olson stole insulin and diabetic test strips.

They say he worked with a naval pharmacy tech at another base, Patrick Keefe, who stole diabetes drugs at his base clinics.

Keefe pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges.

Prosecutors say Olson made more than one million dollars in the scheme and paid Keefe more than $240,000.

They're scheduled to be sentenced in January.
