HELENA - A Missoula man pleaded guilty in federal court to charges that he defrauded more than $280,000 worth of goods from a Polson business.
According to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, Joshua Davis King, 33, made money from 2006 to 2011 by ordering extra supplies at his workplace, the Western Building Center of Polson, and not entering the tools into inventory.
Court papers say King would then sell the supplies, like tool kits, on Ebay using the screen name "wbctool."
The U.S. Secret Service and Lake County Sheriff's Office collaborated on the investigation.
King could earn up to 20 years in prison.
