BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Chris Guerra, a former Baton Rouge Police Officer, has been arrested for access device fraud charges. Guerra, 31, who resigned from BRPD in Aug. 2015, kept his department issued Voyager FuelTrac card for fuel, and continued to use it even after he was fired for his "personal gain."

When hired on with BRPD, Guerra was "advised that it (the FuelTrac card) was to be used for purposes of purchasing fuel for his assigned police unit (#P832) at sites that had only been approved through the department."

After Guerra resigned last year, "several months later, it was learned that Guerra continued use of the FuelTrac card approximately 50 times (totaling $1,454.00), without the authorization of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Guerra allegedly used the card between Aug. 16, 2015-Jan. 24, 2015 at unapproved sites. Investigators said they were able to obtain pictures and surveillance videos at two of the places he allegedly got fuel from. His arrest report says Guerra was seen on video pumping gas into his personal vehicle, a green Ford F-150 and paying for it with the department issued FuelTrac card.

His bond has been set at $1,500. Guerra graduated from the BRPD Academy in July 2013.
