Anthony Todd Saxon, 34, was dressed in a complete Army combat uniform, including rank and other insignia, when he walked into Fort Gordon's military police office and requested the aiming laser for a training exercise, according to a federal affadavit.

He told the captain in charge that he was a master sergeant with the 82nd Airborne Division and needed the equipment for training, according to an affidavit supporting the arrest warrant.

The captain on duty provided the device and Saxon signed a receipt for it, according to federal documents.

The military police later became suspicious of Saxon and he was stopped and questioned. He gave officers permission to search his vehicle. 

They found found several grenades, a land mine, several night vision devices and the infrared aiming laser he signed out earlier, according to the affidavit.

In an interview, Saxon allegedly reported he served in the Army National Guard for two years in the 1990s before he was released due to health reasons. He has not served in the Army, according to the affidavit signed by FBI Agent Jason S. Gustin.

I'm not defending this creap,

I'm not defending this creap, but I do get tired of people making comments like "Just My Opinion". Below is a video on youtube someone made, listing some of the more prolific black serial killers. It includes one, Coral Watts, whom to date has not been beaten in his count of dead bodys. Just a little fact for you to munch on today.

AC needs to look into the way it formats the website. Not all photos are square or need to be stretched to the set width here. This guys pic and any other mugshot are perfect examples. Enough with the distorted photos...

Only six survived. As luck would have it, one of them was lucky Lydia, his ex-girlfriend

I agree with you OnlyinAgs.

I agree with you OnlyinAgs. I was merely retorting to Just my Opinions view that only middle-aged white men are capable of murder on the insanity level, furthermore I do understand there is a difference in mass murder and serial killings. One thing that is consistent with the two is that it takes someone very evil and insane to commit both.

Middle-aged white men are not

Middle-aged white men are not the scourge of the earth, just as minority's are not the saints that Just my Opinion is insinuating. Both are equally capable of killing another human being.

Hey, hey, hey...wait a

Hey, hey, hey...wait a minute, guys! I should have said "Why does it SEEM that mass murderers are USUALLY middle-aged white guys?". I knew it wasn't true that ALL were white, it just seemed that way. But I was certainly proven wrong, wasn't I? Anyway, bottom line is that this dude had a nut loose somewhere, especially if his own wife had no idea. Feel sorry for her and their kids. Okay guys..thanks for straightening out my narrow-minded opinions on mass murderers!
