A former middle school teacher in central Minnesota faces up to a century in prison after a federal jury in Minneapolis convicted him of stealing more than a quarter-million dollars in hunting and fishing gear while working part-time for his friend's family business and then selling the items on eBay.

David Earl Gregoire, of Little Falls, was convicted on five counts of mail fraud. He faces a potential maximum penalty of 100 years in prison. Sentencing before U.S. District Judge Ann D. Montgomery has yet to be scheduled.

According to the charges and the evidence presented at trial:

While a science teacher, Gregoire, a longtime employee and "trusted" friend of the owners of Reed's Family Outdoor Outfitters, took at least $265,339 worth of merchandise from the sporting goods business between August 2005 and June 2008.

He intercepted the goods while transferring them from the company's warehouses in Walker to its store in Onamia and its former store in Baxter. He then sold the items on eBay, regularly offering them at or below wholesale prices.

In June 2008, Little Falls police searched Gregoire's residence and turned up hundreds of items including shotguns, rifles and scopes. In a statement to police, Gregoire allegedly admitted to the theft and sale of the items.

Gregoire resigned from the School District prior to the 2008-09 school year, said Superintendent Curt Tryggestad.
