A former Las Vegas police officer is accused of double-dipping while working for the city and taking gas for personal purposes.

Shawn Montoya, 37, 25 Flagstone Road in Las Vegas, was charged April 13 with one count of fraud and 19 counts of forgery in connection with his work for the city.

The alleged criminal activity occurred from October 2007 to March 2008. Montoya resigned quietly from the local police department in late March 2008. State police said that Montoya took nearly $1,100 in value from the city.
