    Man Accused Of Stealing Parts From Submarine
    Man Says He Found Parts Next To Restaurant

    POSTED: 10:00 am EST January 29, 2008
    UPDATED: 10:09 am EST January 29, 2008

    NORFOLK, Va. -- A man accused of stealing counterattack parts worth $70,000 from a submarine to sell for scrap metal has been indicted in federal court in Norfolk.

    Frank E. Spaulding of Jamaica, in New York's Queens borough, was charged with theft of public property and making false statements.

    Authorities said Spaulding took two steel domes from a pier at Norfolk Naval Station in December 2006, when the USS Hampton was being refurbished. The domes, weighing 230 pounds apiece, cover anti-torpedo units that confuse approaching enemy torpedoes.

    Court papers made public late Friday don't say how Spaulding had access to the pier. He told Navy investigators that he found the parts next to a restaurant.

    The Hampton has since transferred from Norfolk to San Diego.

    I have no doubts about that. But at 230 pounds per unit..... thats a lotta heavy metal to be just kinda dragg'n around under yer arm.

    He claims he found them near a restraunt. He thought they were discarded soup kettles no doubt.
