Omaha Man to Prison for Misuse of Federal Gas Card
An Omaha man will serve 9 months in federal prison for unauthorized use of a military-issued gas card. 32-year-old Terrell Smith will also have to pay restitution of nearly $23,000. Federal authorities say the Nebraska Air National Guard noticed in October that the credit card assigned to a National Guard recruiter was being used at gas stations in north Omaha and Council Bluffs to buy large quantities of gas. The FBI and General Services Administration determined Smith repeatedly used the card to put $23,000 worth of gas into his car and the cars of friends.
