KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A 70-year-old suburban Kansas City woman faces federal charges accusing her of selling the U.S. Army nearly $3 million worth of bogus computer equipment.

Virgie Dillard, of Lee’s Summit, is accused of providing counterfeit, used or modified computer products to an Army program through her Kansas City-based company, Missouri Office System and Supplies.

The U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri said in a release that Dillard’s employee, Roland Evans, also of Lee’s Summit, and Mark Morgan of Newport Coast, Calif., were also charged in the 12-count indictment unsealed Thursday. They’re accused of selling the Army about $2.8 million in counterfeit or modified computer products in 2009 and 2010.

Online court records did not list lawyers for any of the defendants.
