COURT­HOUSE — An Audubon man pleaded guilty Tues­day to ac­cess de­vice fraud, re­ceiv­ing stolen prop­erty and theft by de­cep­tion in Mont­gomery County Court of Com­mon Pleas.

Joseph Day­walt, 22 of the 100 block of Butcher Street, will be sen­tenced af­ter a pre-sen­tenc­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­port is com­pleted.

Ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit of prob­a­ble cause, on June 25, 2013 Con­shohocken po­lice re­ceived a re­port of credit card fraud from the Wash­ing­ton Fire Com­pany, which re­ported its Jay Gress card was be­ing used by Day­walt, a mem­ber of the fire com­pany, to re­fuel his per­sonal ve­hi­cles.

Po­lice ob­tained se­cu­rity footage of Day­walt fill­ing up his own ve­hi­cle and pay­ing with the credit card. Day­walt, who was never au­tho­rized by the fire com­pany to re­fuel his own ve­hi­cle, was ar­rested by Lower Prov­i­dence po­lice July 8 af­ter a war­rant was is­sued for his ar­rest.

The open guilty plea means he has no ex­pec­ta­tions at sen­tenc­ing and did not en­ter into any kind of deal with the dis­trict at­tor­ney’s of­fice.
