MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A federal grand jury has indicted two Morgantown men for allegedly using a federal agency credit card to purchase big ticket items.
U.S. Attorney Bill Ihlenfeld said that from May until November last year Carl Gaul, 40, and Shawn Ratliff, 35, used a credit card from the Federal Bureau of Prisons to purchase more than $13,000 of merchandise. They worked for the federal prison system at the time.
“They purchased these expensive items from places like Target, Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods,” Ihlenfeld said.
The items included a Sanyo 42” LED TV; two JBL Onbeat Awake devices; two IHOME devices; three Bose SoundLink systems; two Beats by Dre Beat Box devices and one JBL Flip device.
If convicted, Gaul and Ratliff face up to 15 years in prison.
