US: MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO SELLING CHINESE-MADE MILITARY HELMETS AND BODY ARMOUR TO FEDERAL AGENCIES

A US DoJ news release on 16 November advised that a man has pleaded guilty to a wire fraud scheme involving the selling of Chinese-made military helmets, body armour, and other products to the Department of State and other federal agencies while falsely claiming that his company manufactured the goods in Texas.  Tanner Jackson, 32, operated Top Body Armor LLC USA, and a related entity, Bullet Proof Armor LLC.  He supplied equipment including to personnel guarding the US Embassy in Baghdad and to foreign law enforcement partners in Latin America.  The equipment was removed from service after concerns about its quality came to light.
