John Charles Mackay, 47, parked at SFO on Feb. 3 and returned from South Africa on April 13, the sheriff’s office said.

However, when Mackay wrote a $2,277 check in his company’s name to pay for 69 days of parking charges, it was discovered the check was written against a closed account and returned for insufficient funds, the sheriff’s office said.

Mackay described himself as self-employed.

On Friday, Mackay pleaded guilty in San Mateo County Superior Court to a felony count of delivering a fraudulent check, according to the sheriff’s office.

He was placed on three years of probation and ordered to pay restitution.
