KENAI, Alaska (AP) - A former Central Emergency Services firefighter and his wife have pleaded guilty to theft charges for taking money from two charitable organizations that provide firefighting training money.

The Peninsula Clarion (https://bit.ly/1sdwwL1) reports Jack Anderson pleaded guilty to misdemeanor theft and Angela Anderson pleaded guilty to felony theft in connection with the disappearance of more than $8,200 from the charities.

As part of a plea arrangement, they will pay restitution, perform 80 hours of community service and serve probation.

CES provides emergency services in the central Kenai Peninsula.

At their plea hearing, two current CES employees testified that the Andersons drained the accounts of local chapters of the national Fraternal Order of Leatherhead Society, which provides firefighter training opportunities, and Explorer Post No. 999, which provides fire service scholarships for teens.
