A man already wanted on bigamy and theft warrants in Georgia is being sought by Jacksonville, FL police on grand theft charges after $12,000 in jewelry was stolen from a woman he proposed to marry, police said.
A man identified as Douglas Ulysses Johnson, 56, posed as an Army lieutenant colonel who served several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and was assigned to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
A Jacksonville woman told police she met Johnson online and that the two began making wedding plans after the proposal. Police were told Johnson disappeared while the woman, whose name was not available Thursday, was at work. His belongings and the jewelry were gone, according to police.
Johnson was last known to be driving a red four door Nissan with a Florida tag. He is wanted in Savannah, Ga., on bigamy and theft charges and for absconding from parole in Michigan, according to police who said he is also wanted in California.
An arrest warrant charging Johnson with grand theft was issued Thursday.
Anyone with information about Johnson's whereabouts is asked to contact JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crimestoppers at 866-845-TIPS to remain anonymous.
