A former Boston Police officer plead guilty Monday in connection with purchasing and using gift cards obtained from the return of stolen merchandise, according to the FBI.
Eddie Odney, 38, pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud.
U.S. District Court Senior Judge Mark L. Wolf scheduled sentencing for Nov. 3. Odney has agreed to resign his position as a Boston Police Officer, effective today.
Over the course of over a year and a half, Odney purchased about $5,000 worth of gift cards that he believed were obtained from the return of stolen merchandise at stores including T.J. Maxx, Macy’s, and HomeGoods. Odney paid cash for these cards and used them to make over $1,600 in purchases.
Odney is facing up to 10 years in prison along with a $250,000 fine, FBI official said.
