Cannon Gives Away Money by Mistake

Close to 79-thousand dollars was given to some Cannon Air Force Base Airmen by mistake. 

A Department of Defense audit released last month shows ten Airmen each received close to 8-thousand dollars for housing allowance.

The Airmen were living in military housing and should have not been given any allowance. They are only allowed allowance when living off base.

We spoke with Cannon officials and they say it was rare occurrence and there are no criminal charges. 

The Air Force will recoup the money from the Airmen.
