Ramstein major gets 4 months for drug use
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — An Air Force major from Ramstein Air Base was given four months in jail and a reprimand for marijuana use, according to base officials.
At a court-martial at Ramstein earlier this month, Maj. Timothy Reburn pleaded guilty to using marijuana last summer at or near the air base, according to information provided by Ramstein’s legal office. Reburn “illegally consumed” marijuana on Aug. 8, according to base officials. Reburn also pleaded guilty to failing to report to the base’s drug demand reduction office for a mandatory random urinalysis test on Aug. 12, according to legal officials. He subsequently tested positive for drug use two days later, officials said.
Reburn is assigned to the 690th Network Support Squadron, Detachment 1, at Ramstein.
He’ll serve his jail sentence at the Army’s confinement facility in Mannheim, officials said in an e-mail.
