Your description requires a series of follow-up questions, but other than the car registration, I don't see anything that is likely to excite a prosecutor.

I am active duty and live in Virginia where open carry is legal. My question is, a lot of establishments ban open carry unless you’re law enforcement. I’ve seen different things online, but are we still technically law enforcement?
Neither the Commonwealth of Virginia nor the federal government recognize you as a law enforcement officer. You don't have the ability to arrest or do any of the other things that are unique to police powera. That having been said, this is really more about the rules a private entity has set...Read more »

On January 27th he was convicted of a felony in North Carolina for Grand Larceny, this crime occurred over a year and a half ago and he... Read more »
Assuming the credit application and the lease do not require a disclosure about a previous crime, he may not have to disclose it. I would need to review all the documents before I could tell you for sure.

If they cannot show that you can access to the money, then you probably won't be charged. Of course, if you helped someone take the...Read more »
