A former investigator at the Garland County sheriff’s office pleaded guilty yesterday to stealing from the Arkansas Narcotics Officers Association, the Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reports.

Michael Wright had been the treasurer of the association and had worked for the sheriff’s department for 20 years before his arrest in 2017. He was initially charged with a felony (theft of property more than $5,000) but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of theft of property more than $1,000. He was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay $11,380 in restitution to the association.
