Charge: Navy sailor tried to destroy urine samples in fire

VIRGINIA BEACH — A Navy sailor is accused of trying to destroy his urine samples in a fire to prevent the test results from being used against him.

Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Curtis Dajuan Johnson faces a court-martial trial for trying to incinerate the samples on May 1, 2017, at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia. The charge sheets say he set the fire in an occupied building “without proper authority.”

Prosecutors have charged Johnson with one specification of wrongful interference with an adverse administrative proceeding, as well as an aggravated arson charge. He’s also charged with lying to investigators about his whereabouts.

The Pennsylvania native is assigned to Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic.
