A former Boston Police officer was sentenced for a scheme involving stolen merchandise from multiple stores.
Eddie Odney, 38, was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Tuesday to 36 months probation, a fine of $10,000 and forfeiture of $1,600.
Odney had pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud and resigned from his position as a Boston Police Officer in August.
Prosecutors said he purchased approximately $5,000 worth of gift cards that were obtained from the return of stolen merchandise at stores including T.J. Maxx, Macy's, Whole Foods and HomeGoods.
The former police officer paid cash for the cards and used them to make over $1,600 in purchases in 2015.
