ALLENDALE - A former Allendale Police Officer pleaded guilty this week to stealing almost $5,000 from the department's evidence locker.

Juan Nevarez pleaded guilty Monday to one count of misconduct in office and one count of grand larceny in connection with the theft of $4,680 in July 2006, said the 14th Circuit Solicitor's Office.

Judge Perry Buckner sentenced Nevarez to one year in prison, a sentence that will be suspended when Nevarez completes two years of probation.

The case was investigated by the State Law Enforcement Division, and was prosecuted by the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor's Office Western Career Criminal Prosecution Team. The team consists of three attorneys who prosecute Allendale, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper County cases against repeat offenders in addition to cases in which a public official is accused of breaching the public's trust.
