BASEHOR, Kan. (AP) - A former Kansas City-area fire chief has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $14,000 from his township.

KCTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1IDUNnR ) Jeff Theno of Basehor admitted Wednesday to stealing from Fairmont Township. The former fire chief was paid to remodel the township’s fire station but didn’t complete the required work. The felony theft was uncovered after a newly elected county attorney reviewed work orders.

Prosecutors will recommend the 17-year fire veteran get probation when he is sentenced next month. Theno tells the station that he intends to pay back all the money and finish the work.
