A former Red Deer man has been sentenced to six months in jail for fraud using an RCMP credit card, and two months in jail for fraud using a local radio station’s credit card.
Daniel Alexander McKenna, 20, pleaded guilty to committing fraud under $5,000 and fraud over $5,000 in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday.
The court heard McKenna was an employee of a Fas Gas station in Red Deer when he used an RCMP credit card number to defraud the RCMP of more than $21,000.
He used a credit card from CKGY to defraud the radio station of about $4,800.
The offences occurred between Feb. 18 and April 23, 2010. The RCMP card was kept in a police vehicle but somehow McKenna was able to use the number.
The radio station’s card was kept at the gas station.
McKenna’s sentence was reduced seven days for time spent in custody.
He received one-year probation.
