Truck used to transport body parts to VA hospital: ‘This is the same type of equipment used in the Civil War’
After being accused of looting a medical facility in Virginia, an Arizona trucker was arrested on federal property and charged with stealing and transporting a body parts from a hospital, according to a criminal complaint obtained by Breitbart News.

The charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Bowers is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
According to the complaint, Bowers told FBI agents that the medical equipment and equipment he was transporting from the facility to a Phoenix home was stolen and was then stored in the trunk of a truck, which was driven to the Phoenix VA Medical Center, where it was delivered to the medical facility.
The truck was parked outside of the facility for a few hours, and the alleged victim was present, but she was not in attendance, according the complaint.
