McCamey Man Sentenced for Credit Card Fraud

MIDLAND - A McCamey man will spend time behind bars and have to pay back a hefty gas bill after being found guilt of credit card fraud.

45-year-old David Valenzuela was sentenced Thursday in Midland Federal Court. Valenzuela will have to pay back nearly $50,000 to Basic Energy and spend the next year in prison. He will then spend three years on supervised release.

Valenzuela fraudulently used a Basic Energy fuel credit card for six months back in 2008. He took cash from people and then let them use his company card to gas up.
