Fort Bragg soldiers face federal charges in sham marriage scheme

Three Fort Bragg soldiers have been implicated in a scam to marry female soldiers off to immigrants and exchange legal residency for cash and benefits.

Sgt. Edward Anguah has been remanded into federal custody until a Jan. 31 hearing, according to court documents, while arrest warrants have been issued for Spc. Ahmid Mohammed-Murtadaas and two Ghanaian nationals for their role in the scheme.

“We take allegations of misconduct seriously and it is important for everyone on our team to live and demonstrate the Army Values every day,” Lt. Col. Michael Burns, XVIII Airborne Corps spokesman, told Army Times on Monday.
