A Saskatchewan RCMP officer is accused of misusing a credit card to buy gas.

Mounties say Constable Ryan Coleman of the Canora detachment is currently on desk duty facing one count of fraud in the alleged off-duty incident last spring.

Prosecutors are recommending the case be dealt with through the alternative measures program.

That means Coleman will not make a court appearance and will not have a criminal record, but will face an RCMP disciplinary hearing.
