Edward Arvel Guerrero was sentenced Tuesday in Moab's 7th District Court. A judge ordered him to begin serving his sentence Saturday.

Guerrero also has to pay $958 in fines and will spend the next two years on probation.

Guerrero pleaded guilty in May to misdemeanor theft, and prosecutors agreed to drop a felony burglary charge.

He was accused of breaking into the Moab Police Department and stealing the money sometime between Aug. 15 and Oct. 6 of last year. Authorities say the money was intended for making undercover drug buys.
