A former military base store employee who admitted to using a customer's Military Star Card account number for thousands of dollars in purchases will not have to serve any time in prison.

Chad Aaron Ogo Gumabon appeared before District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood for sentencing on Thursday.

He received three years of probation.

In July, Gumabon pleaded guilty to one count of access device fraud.

He was ordered to pay restitution to the victim in the amount of $6,073.24.

While employed by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, Gumabon obtained the card account number and its expiration date while assisting the card owner, documents state.

He was accused of using an account number from a Military Star Card that belongs to another person without that person’s consent. It was used at the AAFES store, Andersen Air Force Base Main Exchange, AAFB Gas Express, Barrigada Gas Express and the Navy Exchange, court documents state.
