ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A former U.S. Postal Service employee in Albuquerque has been sentenced to two years of probation for theft of government funds.

Prosecutors say 51-year-old Gary J. Devine was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Albuquerque.

Devine pleaded guilty in the case three months ago.

Prosecutors say Devine admitted that he sold USPS stamps to customers and kept the money for himself during a four-day period in late May 2015.

At the time, Devine was employed as sales and service associate at a U.S. Post Office in Albuquerque.
