A former U.S. Navy sailor was charged Tuesday with selling more than 290 pieces of stolen military equipment.

Phillip Andro Jamison, 30, a former petty officer 1st class, was charged with using EBay to sell tactical flashlights, laser-aiming gear and night-vision equipment, authorities said.

Jamison had access to the armory when he was assigned to the Navy's amphibious base in Coronado, according to authorities.

He pleaded not guilty Tuesday in San Diego federal court.
