YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) - Former Smith Township Police Chief John Siranovic was sentenced Wednesday for stealing money from a police evidence room.
A judge sentenced him to two years in prison, to be served at the same time. That means he'll be behind bars for a year.
The crime happened while Siranovic was working as chief.
The money came from a 2014 gambling raid. Prosecutors said $28,000 in cash, gift cards and a TV were seized.
Siranovic only turned over $17,000 to the township.
