Former Labour MP Jim Devine has been found guilty of making false expense claims at Southwark Crown Court.
He will become the first MP convicted by a jury in the wake of the expenses scandal.
Mr Devine denied three charges of false accounting - one for hygiene and cleaning, another for headed paper and a third for stationary.
He was elected in 2005 and stood down in 2010. He entered parliament following the death of former foreign secretary Robin Cook.
The Metropolitan Police said: "Given the number of outstanding trials and investigations relating to other MPs and Lords expenses, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage."
He will be sentenced at a later date.
Mr Devine was Parliamentary private secretary to the health minister Rosie Winterton before resigning over the decision to replace Trident.
