PHOTO: DAVID WALKER/STUFF – Stephen Gubb has been jailed by the Christchurch District Court for charges of obtaining by deception.

A property consultant has been jailed for arranging for a real estate agent to fraudulently receive almost $150,000 in commissions relating to a Canterbury industrial park.

The Christchurch District Court was told the real estate company involved had reached a civil repayment agreement with the Selwyn District Council, which had paid $300,000 in commissions.

One of the charges involved a fraudulent invoice put in to the council by Stephen Rolf Gubb for lighting repairs in a reserve area. Gubb immediately repaid the $10,500 involved in that, as soon as the fraud was discovered.

Gubb, 62, from Wanaka, admitted the 14 fraud charges in March and was remanded in custody for sentence on Wednesday.
