MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A manager for a Milwaukee firm has been sentenced to six months in prison, for stealing $59,000 from a parking meter operation in St. Louis.
Frank Habeebullah was the St. Louis representative for the Milwaukee-based Duncan Solutions, which was contracted to operate the city’s parking meters. Duncan then hired Dankar Enterprise Incorporated to handle the St. Louis outfit.
Dannielle Welch-Benson owned Dankar – and prosecutors said she inflated her company’s bills to St. Louis by $5,000 a month or more from mid-2009 through 2011. She kept over two-thirds of the excess, while Habeebullah got just under a-third of it.
Welch-Benson was sentenced to over two years in prison for her role in the scheme. Both defendants will get 3 years of probation once they’re no longer behind bars.
