United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Theft of Government Property has pled guilty to the charge and was sentenced on November 4, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. 

Christopher Menard, age 39, was ordered to pay a $350 fine, $150.08 in restitution, and $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from incidents that occurred on three separate occasions between December 3, 2012, and January 19, 2013, when Menard used gas cards that belonged to the Bureau of Indian Affairs Fire Management Office to steal gas money, which he put into his own personal vehicle.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Interior – Office of Inspector General.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.
